I have written a simple applet, when I use awt components and extend Applet it works fine, but if I use JApplet and swing components it doesn't work, I get a loadClass not found error.
It compiles so it can't be anything to do with my classpath.
does anyone know what could be wrong:
import java.applet.*;
import javax.swing.*;

class ColorSelector extends JApplet{ //when Applet it works
//code is here
and embedded here:
<Applet code="ColorSelector.class" codebase="." width="300" height="400">
<Param name="Red" value="140">
<Param name="Green" value="120">
<Param name="Blue" value="110">

This is because the JVM that comes with IE does not support Java 2 classes like Swing. The only browser that does support Java 2 classes is Netscape 6... otherwise you have to use the Java plug-in from Sun, or stick to just AWT components.

You will encounter the same problem trying to use Lists, Sets or Maps.
