Cambridge, MA, April 5, 1996: Natural Intelligence, Inc. and Hayden Books today announce the publication of Teach Yourself Java for Macintosh in 21 Days.

This edition of the nationally best-selling line is geared toward Macintosh programmers, and contains a special version of Roaster (tm), the first development environment that Macintosh(r) developers can use to create applets in Sun Microsystems' Java(tm) programming language.

Roaster, the Development Environment for Java, includes a hierarchical project window, powerful source code editor, interpreter, Java compiler, debugger, and speedy runtime engine.

"Natural Intelligence is excited to be part of Teach Yourself Java for the Macintosh in 21 Days," said Joshua D. Wachs, President of Natural Intelligence. "The Macintosh is one of the best learning tools there is. Using Roaster and the excellent examples in this book, Macintosh developers, and even those new to programming, will be able to learn Java quickly and easily."

Mimir Reynisson, Natural Intelligence's lead Roaster engineer who helped review the book for technical accuracy, also noted Hayden's commitment to making sure that the book was of the highest quality.
