We describe the design and implementation of Java multimedia applications over asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks on Linux operating systems (OS). We propose a Java application programming interface (API) that allows Java multimedia applications to run over ATM networks. We present the results of a performance evaluation of the Java ATM API. We also demonstrate how the Java ATM API and Java media framework (JMF) can be used to develop Java multimedia applications over ATM networks. By combining Java's programming advantages and ATM's network capabilities, multimedia applications can take advantage of both technologies using the Java ATM API.
