This section tells you how applets work. You should thoroughly understand this lesson before going further in this trail.
Taking Advantage of the Applet APIThis section describes how to use the API to which only applets have access. It covers sound, applet parameters, the
<APPLET>tag, interapplet communication, and making requests to the browser.
Practical Considerations When Writing AppletsThis section discusses topics that are covered elsewhere in this tutorial but that are affected by the applet environment. For example, it mentions some factors you should consider when writing the graphical user interface (GUI) for your applet. It also talks about security restrictions on applets and how a server-side application can help you get around those restrictions.
Finishing an AppletThis section describes the characteristics of a high-quality applet. It includes Before You Ship That Applet, a checklist of some annoying behaviors you should avoid in your applet.
Deploying AppletsThis section explains to HTML authors how and when to use the
embedtags to add Java applets to Web pages.
Common Problems (and Their Solutions)This section explains the solutions to some problems you might run into while writing your applet.
