I have a working Java app that can find the most recently created file in a folder. My end goal is to have that app on a web page so when a user opens the web page the page will cause the most recent file in a folder to open. I've read some tutorials from oracle on creating simple applets, but everything I've come across involves making a GUI that my page will not need.
Currently, when I open the html page in firefox it loads all the html except for the applet. It gives no error messages, it just doesn't do anything. I think it's because it isn't recognizing my java app as an applet, so I think I may need to do more to convert my code to an applet. I added "extends Applet" to my java class name, and I looked into adding an init method, but that seems more geared towards those who want GUI's.
The java app is attached in case that may help. As far as the HTML goes, I embedded the applet as <applet code="FirstApplet" width='300' height='300'> and it is located in the same folder as the java app.
