Hello all...
I have created an applet with 2 Buttons & on clicking 1 button i want to exit the appletviewer.
Below is the code for ActionEvent:-
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
if (e.getSource()==button)
System.out.println("exit ");
The above code is throwing Exception.
Can someone help me ?.

You exit the appletviewer by closing the window.
System.exit() is not allowed in applets - the reason should be clear after a moment's reflection. The browser JVM may be executing any number of applets in a page, it makes no sense to let one of them stop the system.
