Sorry if this is in the wrong section, it was the only place where this really seemed to fit.
So I was able to upload my very, very simple applet on to a webpage so that I would be able to show it to people easily. I opened the link on my computer and it was able to run perfectly. I then proceeded to test it on a friend's computer to make sure it worked. The applet wouldn't load. I checked the program files to make it sure it had java installed on it. It did have java installed, but NOT jdk. Just to be sure, I reinstalled java and tried again. Still no luck. Then I went in and downloaded JDK and installed it. After that, it started running.
I could be completely wrong, but I thought that java applets/applications were supposed to run without the need of JDK being installed on the computer. Is there any way to make it so they can be run without JDK? Any help is greatly appreciated.
