I have made a game applet, where score is being shown in a new Dialog window. which displays a button Play again, clicking on which, the applet should reload.
Is it possible?
Pls. help

Yes. You don't actually re-load the applet though. You need to factor your applet so that it can be restarted.
Have a method like initGame() that gets called in response to a click in your playGame button. You can then automatically start your game when your applet loads, by having the start() method call your initGame() method.
