Marimba's Castanet system is one of many products that promise to "push" content across the Net to your desktop. In The Official Marimba Guide to Castanet, you'll learn about the pieces that comprise Castanet, how to use them, and--most importantly--how to program Castanet "channels" that can deliver Java applets, HTML, and more. While the first half of the book focuses on end-user operation, there's still plenty of substantive coverage for developers, including sections on saving application state on a user's system (which is normally impossible in Java), handling dynamic application updates, and customizing delivery based on individual user preferences.

Castinet is both tuner and transmitter technology for push technology for the web. In this detailed guide to what Castinet can do for your web site, Lemay's (Laura Lemay's Web Workshop, Sams.net, 1997) clear writing is supplemented with a CD containing evaluation copies of Castinet. If you are a manager or designer of digital libraries you need to spend some time with this book; again, this is not for beginners.
