    Default Convert Desktop app into Applet


    me again

    I am wondering how I could (If possible, without many modifications) run my desktop application as applet.
    I use swing components and JDBC (online DB).

    I tried to add in the main class 'extends JApplet', but it tries to load but nothing happens...

    I thought that from Java and JApplet the difference would be little, otherwise there would be no point in using it...

    Any suggestions? I would like to not change my code that much...

    First of all you need to understand the functionality of an applet vs. an application. This can be job for less than an hour, or days, depending on how you designed your app. Search the web for guides to convert apps to applets, and from the whole you'll find, at least some will surely fit your design and you can follow them easily.
