Silk ® is a set of Java classes that support object-oriented, general-purpose simulation and animation using the Java programming language. Silk enables the development of complex, yet manageable simulations through the construction of usable and reusable simulation objects. Silk objects are usable because they express the precise behavior of individual entity-threads from the object perspective using familiar process-oriented modeling constructs and the object-oriented features of a general

Silk objects are reusable because they can be easily archived, edited and assembled using professional Java visual development environments that support the JavaBeans component architecture. This introduction describes the fundamentals of designing and creating a Silk model.
