    You are trying to run an applet like an application. Applications require a main method, applets don't. Try running using appletviewer rather than java.

    You compile it as applet, not as an application. Applications require a main method.

    Also, usually I've seen people extend JApplet

    It's a subclass of Applet.

    JApplet (Java 2 Platform SE v1.4.2)

    Not exactly...the compilation is the same, but they run differenly, in this case it needs to be run as an applet
