Day 7: Writing Java Applets
Notes and Corrections
- Question: The Watch applet compiles just fine and I can see the
working program with appletviewer, but none of my browsers is able to
show the applet. Do you have any idea what's wrong? --M.L.
Answer: The Watch applet is written using Java 2 techniques, so it won't
be able to run in a Web browser that doesn't support Java 2. At present,
none of the major browser developers offers built-in support for this
version of the Java language. The Java Plug-in section of Day 7 describes
how support for Java 2 applets can be added to current browsers.
