Java

Java is an object-oriented programming language from Sun Microsystems used for developing cross-platform applications, which work under web-browser control and are characterized by high interactivity.

Java can also mean a special programming environment developed by Sun Microsystems, which contains Java universal language, compiler and Java virtual machine. The sphere where Java is applied is quite wide: from embedded devices and mobile phones to enterprise servers and supercomputers.

JTAG

Join Test Action Group. Interface of microchip electronics used for correcting errors, debugging and monitoring of processor’s work in some device, and also for testing sub-blocks of integrated circuits.

For connection with circuit JTAG uses synchronous serial bus, and the connection itself is named test access port (TAP). This protocol enables a developer to access on-chip debugging module which allows debugging software of an embedded system.
