What is Glasgow?

Govind Seshadri

Glasgow is an early code name for the JavaBeans version after Java 1.1. It allows developers to create more sophisticated JavaBeans components offering better integration with their runtime environment (desktop, web browser, etc.). Glasgow adds three new capabilities to the JavaBeans component model:

  • The Extensible Runtime Containment and Services Protocol
  • The Drag and Drop Subsystem for the Java Foundation Classes
  • The JavaBeans Activation Framework
