|JWS (Java Web Start)
Java Web Start
|a winged coffee bean being launched by a spring. It suggests whimsically launching the Java app into the air, like launching a rocket. You might use the icon for the .jnlp extension. I use this icon to represent Java Web Start|
|JDK (Java Development Kit)
|Sun’s public domain Duke chararacter dressed as a full-figured carpenter carrying a tool kit containing a saw. You might use the icon for the .java extension. I use this icon to represent the JDK .|
|JRE (Java Runtime Environment)
|Sun’s public domain Duke chararacter as a runner, stripped down and lean, to suggest the bare essentials needed to run Java applications. He is wearing a yellow jersey, suggestive of the yellow jersey worn by the front runner in la Tour de France bicycle race. You might use the icon for the .class extension. I use this icon to represent the JRE .|
|woodpecker||Woodpecker. I am not sure what precise species this one is supposed to be.
It looks a bit like a golden fronted woodpecker. The image was only intended to
represent a generic woodpecker. Check out whatbird.com
search for excellent bird illustrations to help you identify species. I use this
icon to represent unmaintainable code.
If builders built buildings the way programmers write programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.
|blue whale||This is a blue whale, the largest animal that ever existed. I use this icon to represent animal rights .|
|tire swing||I use this icon to represent Swing GUI Components.|
|giraffe||I use this icon to represent browsers.|
