    Default Simple applet, but wrong

    I made a simple applet game of pong, but when I try to acces it via html and different browser it says: ClassNotFoundException. I tried a simplier code and got the same message. There in one folder and there I have the files- Main.java and shit.html. Here is the code:

    package GAME;
    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    public class Main extends Applet{
       public void paint(Graphics g){
          g.drawString("Help! I need somebody! Help!",40,20);

    and the html

    HTML Code:
    <div >
    <APPLET CODE="Main.class" WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="500">

    Default Re: Simple applet, but wrong

    What was the full error message? What was the name of the class that was not found?

    One problem is the class is in a package, so the class's full name includes the package name:

    The simplest fix is to remove the package statement.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
