Applets not working in WinXp,Asp.NET

My environment is winxp, 2003, Java 2 runtime environment SE
I have a java applet that I want to include in an page.

I can open it in IE6 in a html page and it runs well.

If I try to open the html page (or a similar aspx page) in vs2003, visual
studio doesnt display the applet part.
I saw in a site that this is bcos Sun sued Microsoft.

So my question is can you include applets in aspx pages and still open
them in vs2003 ? In other words, does visual studio
2003 work with applets running on a Sun JVM?

I'm 99% sure that the answer to the question is no, but let's it over to the IDE forum, where someone might know VisualStudio.

I don't know anything about VS.NET. (That's a problem you run into on a Java site ) But a couple of things to try:

1) Does VS.NET let you change the version of Java to point to one you have installed on your machine?
2) Does VS.NET let you run your .asp files outside the tool in your browser? Many Java IDEs let you use the server in the IDE while running in your "real" browser.
