This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
.class files are java programs. they are run by the VM. they are usually opened either by a browser(applets) or a server(servlets). to run an applet you can make a simple html file that embeds the class file like this: <APPLET CODE="Star.class" HEIGHT="20" WIDTH="20"></APPLET> at least for Java 1 applets. the html is different for Java 2 applets. put the class file in the same folder as the html file. then just doubleclick the html file. i havent written a lot of "applications" in java (1) so i forgot how to run them.
