hi,
i am new javaranch. However, i am silent reader, I have been reading various posts in varipus forum.so finally i thought i shd post my question in this forum.

Can anybody tell me , "What does it mean by white paper?"
why is it not called "technical paper"? why this specific term is used?
How can someone submit a white paper? suppose, i study a certain technology and want to publisha paper , what procedure i shd follow?

any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ken,

Companies generally accept white papers in the following formats: Microsoft Word, text, screen-resolution PDF and basic HTML 4.0 (without javascript or cascading style sheets).

Do a google or yahoo search "How to submit a white paper" and look at specific companies requirements.

There isn't a formal definition of "white paper" but here's a plausible one from whatis.com.
