Hey everybody...I am maintain some old code, and I ran into a small problem. In the code, there is this line:
I beleive this starts the applet viewer, but I am not sure. The problem is that it is deprecated, and I am trying to update everything. I have searched and searched through api's/documenation, but can't find a replacement for it. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks All!

It looks like the app is attempting to spawn a copy of the AppletViewer in order to run an applet. On my JDK, "appletviewer" is now a shell script, so I'd probably replace the statement to a call to the runtime.exec method with the appletviewer command line in it ("appletviewer MyApplet");

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
