(operating system) Apple Computer, Inc.'s new development platform for building desktop, server, and web applications. Yellow Box is a rich object-oriented environment that is tightly integrated with Java and allows you to deploy applications across five platforms: Rhapsody, Rhapsody for Intel, Windows 95, Windows NT, and Mac OS. All Yellow Box-based products are an evolution of OpenStep - an operating system-independent, object-oriented application platform from NeXT.Integrating the cross-platform robustness of OpenStep with Apple's market-leading digital media and graphics technologies will differentiate the Yellow Box from other development platforms. "Yellow Box for Windows" is the run-time software (implemented as dynamically linked libraries) that allows Yellow Box applications to run under Windows 95 and Windows NT. Applications that use it will feature a full native Windows user interface. http://wais.sensei.com.au/macarc/appdir/1996/0077.html.
