Applet is a program provided by java which is designed for execution within the web browser. Applets are mostly used for a small internet and intranet applications because of small size and it's compatibility among almost all web browsers. Applets are also very secure.  For example, Applets can be used to serve animated graphics on the web.

import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class HelloWorldApplet extends Applet{
  public static void main(String[] args){
  Frame frame = new Frame("");
  Applet app = new HelloWorldApplet();
  frame.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter(){
 public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e){
 public void paint(Graphics g){
  g.drawString("Hello World!",200,100);

Compiling Applets:


Running Applet from console:

java HelloWorldApplet

Running Applet from Web browser:

Running applet in browser is very easy job, create an html file with the following code:

<title>A Simple Applet program</title>
HelloWorldApplet.class" WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=500>

The Applet tag in html is used to embed an applet in the web page. 

<APPLET CODE="HelloWorldApplet.class" WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=500>
