     Java Technology Article Examines the Advanced Encryption Standard

        A recent article by Rags Srinivas, "Using AES with Java[TM] Technology,"
        examines the history and use of the federal standard for private-key or
        symmetric cryptography. Particularly, the article examines how the
        Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) has been incorporated into several
        Java technology offerings; the Java[TM] Cryptography Extension (JCE) was
        integrated into the Java[TM] 2 SDK, Standard Edition v1.4.0.

        The original AES algorithm that was chosen for the federal standard,
        called Rijndael, was invented by two Belgian cryptographers. AES
        supports combinations of key and block sizes 128, 192 and 256. As part
        of the evaluation process, the algorithms were implemented in the Java
        programming language. Since the AES standard was incorporated into the
        SDK, support for the JCE has been integrated. As a result, it is no
        longer necessary to install the JCE optional package. JCE also has a
        provider architecture that allows different providers to be plugged in
        under a common framework.

        The article primarily looks at AES support in Java[TM] 2 Platform,
        Standard Edition (J2SE[TM]), starting with JCE. Code examples are
        supplied, and sections are included on strong versus unlimited strength
        cryptography and using AES in Java[TM] Secure Socket Extension (JSSE).
        The article concludes that the JCE framework is a powerful and flexible
        framework for using different cryptographic algorithms.

Vol 64 Issue 4 2003-06-23  Article 10228 from section "Publications"

     For the Beginner and the Accomplished Developer

        Sherry Shavor, Jim D'Anjou, Scott Fairbrother, Dan Kehn, John Kellerman
        and Pat McCarthy have capitalized on their vast joint experience as
        members of the IBM Eclipse Jumpstart team to collaborate on writing "The
        Java[TM] Developer's Guide to Eclipse." The authors describe their book
        as covering Eclipse both as a development environment and as a tool that
        can be customized and extended in advanced usage contexts, such as a
        team environment.

        The book assumes no prior knowledge of Eclipse and includes directed
        exercises to familiarize developers with using the Eclipse platform.
        Nevertheless, advanced developers will find the book useful as a
        reference to the Eclipse frameworks. A CD-ROM is included that contains
        Eclipse SDK Version 2.0, along with solutions to the exercises in the
        book and numerous code examples and screen captures.
