Judge Alsup gets Java tutorial

Within a post at computerworld on Oracle v. Google:

But he [Judge Alsup of ND Ca] had to ask several questions to grasp some aspects of Java, including the concept of Java class libraries. "Coming into today's hearing, I couldn't understand what was meant by a 'class,'" he admitted.

Oracle's attorney, Michael Jacobs, explained how developers write Java code and run it through a compiler to produce bytecode. That code can then run on a Java Virtual Machine installed on any type of computer, he explained to the judge, giving Java it's "write once, run anywhere" characteristic.
