You need to have a html file to view the applet using the appletviewer

In order to run an applet with the appletviewer you'll need to pass an html file containing an HTML applet tag as argument.
So you need to create a simple html file containing an applet tag like this:
<applet code="Text" width="300" height="300"></applet>

A second possibiltiy would be to include a comment to your java file as follows:

Then you can invoke your applet by calling appletviewer with the name of the source file as argument:
appletviewer Text.java

Hope that helps,

Good comment, Daniel!
