Java Applet Revision

I first posted an entry on this topic back in February 2009. To refresh my memory, I'll just run through the steps of adding a very simple applet to a web page again. The code for the simple applet is as follows:

import javax.swing.JApplet;
import java.awt.Graphics;

public class HelloWorld extends JApplet {
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawRect(0, 0,
getSize().width - 1,
getSize().height - 1);
g.drawString("Hello world!", 5, 15);

This was borrowed from the old (pre-Oracle) Java tutorial. A slightly more sophisticated version is offered in the current Java Applet tutorial.

The code to include the applet in a web page might be:


<applet code="HelloWorld.class"
width="150" height="50">


And the page might look like this.
