A Java applet is a Java program that's constructed using the class applet and the abstract windows tool kit. An applet is included in a Web page using the HTML tags
<Applet ..specifics about an individual applet> </Applet>
The programs are first written in Java, compiled or translated to byte codes using a Java compiler, and when a Web browser retrieves a page with the Applet tag, the byte codes are sent to the computer viewing the Web page to be executed there.
"The WDVL: Introducing Java(TM) - Your First Applet" by Diana Luckevich for the Web Developer's Virtual Library provides an introduction to Java applets.
Using AppletsSun Microsystems, the developers of Java, maintain the primary Web page for information about the language, http://java.sun.com, and a collection of Java applets. A large collection of applets is maintained by developer.com at http://www.developer.com/directories/pages/dir.java.html Clock, That's part of the collection of applets at the Sun Java site.
Writing Java AppletsSome pertinent documents
The Java language system is distributed as the Java Development Kit (JDK). It has everything you need to write and compile applets, and contains several demonstration applets.
