Internet foundation classes

language, library, programming, standard
(IFC) A library of classes used in the creation of Java applets with GUIs.
Created by Netscape, the Internet Foundation Classes provide GUI elements, as well as classes for Applications Services, Security, Messaging, and Distributed Objects.
The IFC code, which is exclusively Java, is layered on top of the Java Abstract Windowing Toolkit (AWT), thus preserving platform independence.
The AWT and IFC collectively form the Java Foundation Classes, which provide a standardised framework for developing powerful Java applications.
