Is it possible to open and use a java applet from a desktop swing application?

What would be the point of that? Instead of making it an applet (by extending JApplet), make it a window (by extending JFrame), and you're mostly done.

Or is it someone else's applet that you don't have code for? You can always open a web page that refers to the applet; the last item on this FAQ page tells you how.

You can always create the applet yourself and set its AppletContext to a small stub implementation, then call the init() and start() methods. You can also call JApplet.getContentPane() and reinstall that component in a JFrame's content pane, assuming the applet doesn't assume too much about its environment.

The MainFrame class already does most of that, if you want to go down that road.
