a) When you have a need to do multiple things at once.
b) When you want your program embedded in a web page.

a) A clock that runs in the background of your application which does something completely different. eg have two things running at once. (probably as a DeamonThread).

b) Remember that the terms Applet and Application are different things! An applet is a method of distributing the program you have written on Webpages.
