I like the concept of WebGL and I would like to develop some 3d projects with it.
With that program, you can program in C++ (or almost any other high level language that GNU’s compiler suite supports!) and run your programs in a browser.
However, aside from that, it’s not likely we’ll be able to run C++ from a website in a browser simply because the security risks are too high.
Java cautions about clearing Java cache but why and can doing so potentially speed up my Java? I use real time streaming information spreadsheets which are Java driven. Lately they take minutes instead of seconds to load. After the program is up and running, information updates slowly. Clearing the cache has been suggested to me but Java warns against inexperienced users doing so. Why? And exactly what advanced knowledge am I lacking?
The only exception that I’m aware of is Google’s Native Client, which allows you to run C++ in a browser. However, Chrome is the only browser that will support it and I’m not sure if you can use it in conjunction with WebGL. I would not be surprised if this approach takes off in a year or two.
