If you take a close look at Java, you'll realize that it bears a close
similarity to Viola, since the "applets" must be coded from a predefined
language, downloaded and locally interpreted.  Of course this is another
"monolithic" approach (notice that java takes up 10MB of RAM and about 12 of
disk) that assumes that one can create a single language that all
applications can be crafted from.  API's, (such as the Eolas Weblet(TM)
technology, http://www.eolas.com) that allow "applets" to be created using
the most appropriate tools and then embedded in binary form within Web
pages, are much more flexible and powerful.
