To convert from a Java Applet to an application: Delete import *;. applet code=”” width= height=>. To building the applet code two classes of java library are essential namely Applet and Graphics. The Applet class is contained in package provides. An Applet is the special type of Java program that is run on web browser. The Applet class provides the standard interface between applet and browser.

A JVM is required to view an applet.

There are significant differences between applets and stand alone java applications. Getting a message printed through Applet import java. You need to implement these methods to make this applet work. It also specifies the display area for the applet output as pixels width and pixels height.

When to use applets. Initialization can be done programinf init. Eliminate the main method in the application.

Advantages of Applets Applets are supported by most web browser. The JVM on the user’s machine creates an instance of the applet class and invokes various methods during the applet’s lifetime. The size of applets is small, making it easier to transfer over network. Where as application run stand-alone and independently on web. Save the above program: Move any initialization code from the frame window constructor to the init method of the applet.

It is easy to convert a graphical Java application that is, an application that uses the AWT and that you can start with the Java program launcher into programlng applet that you can embed in a web page. Applets cannot run any program from the local computer. Unlike with applications, where java calls the main method directly to initiate the execution of the program, when an applet is loaded java automatically calls a series of Applet class methods for starting running and stopping the applet code.


The user initiates interaction progdaming an applet. An applet is a window based event driven program and it waits until an event occurs. Applets are used for creating Graphical Programs. Applet itself cannot run or modify any application on the local system. Java – Applet Basics Advertisements. The Following will be saved with named FirstJavaApplet. An applet cannot be closed; it terminates when the browser exits.

A web page is basically made proframing of text and HTML tags that can be interpreted by a web browser or an applet viewer.

Preparing to Write Applets Until now we have been creating simple Java application program with a single main method that created objects, set instance variables and ran methods. The security of an applet is often referred to as sandbox security, comparing the applet to a child playing in a sandbox with various rules that must be followed.

Java – Applet Basics

How Applets Differ from Applications There are significant differences between applets and stand alone java applications. So, when the applet called the start Method it is called its running state.

An applet program runs through applet viewer.

The “Hello, World” applet is complete as it stands. If an applet resides in a package other than the default, the holding package must be specified in the code attribute using the period character.

It cannot work with native methods of system. Applets are run from inside a web page using a special feature known as HTML tag. After an applet arrives on the client it has limited access to resources, so that it can produce an arbitrary multimedia user interface and run complex computations without introducing the role of viruses or breaching data integrity.


Files that are located in the local computer cannot be read or write by the applets. This is called as body section because the entire information and behaviour of the web page is contained in it, It defines what the data placed and where on to the screen.

Applet Programming in Java

The Applet class provides default implementations of each of these methods. Java appleta are programs that reside on web page. Remove the call to setSize; for applets, sizing is done with programlng width and height parameters in the HTML file. Javva files should be stored in the same directory as the compiled code of the applets. The output may be test, graphics, or sound. You don’t need to explicitly construct the applet object.

Introduction An Applet is the special type of Java program that is run on web browser.

Applet Programming in Java

An applet cannot access the client-side resources. The paint method is actually inherited from the java. It is also called whenever the user returns to the page containing the applet after having gone off to other pages.

The Applet class is contained in java. Therefore, parseSquareSize catches exceptions, rather than allowing the applet to fail on bad input. The browser instantiates it for you and progarming the init method. Applets have strict security rules that are enforced by the Web browser.
