    Default New to applets


    New to the forum, but not all new on Java programming.
    However new to web applets.
    Followed a guide, but can't get the code working.
    Wheres the missing link?

    Java file:
    package terje;
    public class Terje {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            System.out.println("Dette er en test" );

    Creating a jar file.

    html file:
    <title>My java applet</title>
    <p>My first Java Applet: <br><br></p>
    <applet code="Terje.jar" width="300" height="300">

    But nothing happens.
    Running java -jar "Terje.jar" works fine.
    What am i doing wrong? Whats missing?

    Look at the tutorial about how to create an applet and the html to access it.
    Your code is not an applet and the html is wrong.

    See the examples in the tutorial:
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
