Ristretto® is the name of a technology that allows end-users to transform AgentSheets® projects directly into Java applets without having to know how to program in Java. Now you can at the push of a single button publish your games and interactive simulations as Java applets embedded into Web pages.
n. A 'short pull' (stronger) espresso. "A Ristretto is an expresso made with less (half) the water used for a regular expresso." adj. condensed, constrained.

Ristretto includes two types of compilers. The Resource compiler will directly convert resources such as icons and sounds produced by end-users into formats compatible with Java. At the incredible speed of > 10000 lines of code per second the behavior compiler translates the Visual AgenTalk® language directly into Java byte codes. The ease of use of programming afforded by the Visual AgenTalk® language combined with the transparent use of Java compiler technology enables end-users to create running interactive simulations for the web in a matter of minutes.
