Hello,

I am new to Applet. I have a question on JPanel. Should I use JPanel with JApplet. What I want to know is that should I use a JPanel as a Container for the various applet components or should I directly add the various components to the applet itself. what is a better approach. Just want to know about the approach and better programming style for Applet or JApplet.

Thank You,
Neeteesh

It's not required, since adding components to the JApplet works fine. I'd recommend doing it, though, since that makes it easier to change the layout later (you only need to deal with the JPanel, and not with all the individual components).
