    Default Run Java Applet as Web and Desktop application

    Hi,

    I want to run my Java Applet as Web or Desktop application but don't know how. I've watched some tutorials online about converting Java applet file (.class) to Web app. However, my Applet has multiple files, so I'm thinking of a way using .jar.

    I haven't found any way to run Applet as desktop app yet.

    --- Update ---

    I've solved the web app problem. Need help on Desktop app

    Post a simple Applet (preferably a JApplet) with any attempts you've made to make it also run on the desktop, and we'll help you finish.

    Essentially, an Applet runs as an Applet from the init() method, but a desktop app runs from a main() method. Adding a main() method to the Applet code and running it as you would a normal Java desktop app is all that is needed to run an Applet as a desktop app. There are several tutorials available that show how to implement this concept.

    I'm working on porting my Applet to Android and iOS. That would be nice if you show me some tutorials on how to run Applet as a Desktop app.

    This section of Chapter 6 covers the topic in detail. Note that the 7th edition of this book is now available, and the sections on Applets have been removed completely because of the changes in Java due to the security concerns with Applets.
