The ultimate goal of this project was to create a web-based programming environment that allows beginners to learn basic programming concepts easily. To accomplish this goal, an interpreter was created. The interpreter was integrated into a graphical user interface as a form of Java applet. Since the applet is available throughout the web, it is accessible anytime and anywhere. The programming language was designed to be simple enough for anyone who wants to learn programming. At the same time, it preserved the paradigm that an object-oriented programming language should have. The language created is a subset of Java called Tea.
