You can add tool tip to objects.

JButton b = new JButton("DEMO");
b.setToolTipText("This is the demo button");

I'm not sure whether u can set the tool tip for an applet.
Try this -
within the init() method, type this

this.setToolTipText("This is an applet");

Tell me if it does.
I agree. Here's the link:
