    Hello rptech,

    Yes applets are displayed within webpages. If you want a GUI without using a web browser, you can use Java Swing.

    Take a look at these 2 links:

    Java applet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_(Java)

    If you are looking to build Swing applications. I would suggest looking into the Netbeans IDE.
