Overview of adding a Java applet to an application

To include a Java applet in an application:

  1. Enable Java applets on your workstation.
  2. Import the applet from files on your workstation or on a file server, or link to an applet on the Web.
  3. Use the Programmer's pane and the Properties box to set applet parameters, attributes, and properties. Some applets will run with no modification, but most require that you set parameters or attributes before you can run them.
  4. Correct problems with the Java applets. If the applet doesn't run, you may need to include additional files or set additional parameters.
  5. Optionally, you can set up shared applet resources, that is, set up related files so that they can be used by several applets.

For more information about Java or to find applets you can use, see the Oracle Web site at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.
