Shockwave : Java Glossary

Abobe Shockwave Shockwave

Adobe (formerly Macromedia’s) plug-in for browsers. It is a competitor to Java. There are three similar Macromedia products, Shockwave, Flash and Director. Flash is much smaller and simpler, but has greater penetration. Shockwave’s download is about 3 MB, compared with 1.2 MB for Flash, and 14 MB for the Java run time.

Shockwave does not work on 64-bit browsers, such as IE 64-bit and Opera-64 bit.

There are free players for Flash and Shockwave. To create content you must buy expensive tools. Test your Shockwave installation. You may have to give permission for Shockwave to run.
