Destined to give Java a run for its money, ActiveX is Microsoft's major new technology for the booming Website development market. The ActiveX Sourcebook shows both Web development neophytes and programmers how to create Web applications using Microsoft's ActiveX development tools and technologies. The book reveals the underpinnings of these new technologies and products, including the Internet Explorer 3.0 Web browser, HTML extensions technologies and tools to construct interactive multimedia Web sites with reusable ActiveX components.

ActiveX is Microsoft's answer to Java. ActiveX controls are reusable components that are the foundation of Microsoft's new family of Web development products. Microsoft is creating a major set of tools that will enable Webmasters to create and manipulate ActiveX controls and ultimately add dynamic interactivity to a Web or intranet site.
