A Simple Application Program Interface for Saving Java Program Data on a Wiki
A simple Application Program Interface (API) for Java programs running on a wiki is implemented experimentally. A Java program with the API can be running on a wiki, and the Java program can save its data on the wiki. The Java program consists of PukiWiki, which is a popular wiki in Japan, and a plug-in, which starts up Java programs and classes of Java. A Java applet with default access privilege cannot save its data at a local host. The authors have constructed an API of applets for easy and unified data input and output at a remote host. They also combined the proposed API and the wiki system by introducing a wiki tag for starting Java applets.
