This forum is for job discussion (as its name implies). I'll move this to the applet forum.

Applets ans Servlets/JSP are so different that it's hard to know where to begin. Applets can show very complex client-side GUIs and make it easy to perform significant client-side processing, but they require a JVM to be installed and take some time (in the order of seconds, possibly more than 10) to initialize.
There are other differences, but let's start with these. Does this help?
