It seems that Applets and Java Web Start are not widely used in the industry. If it is tue, I will skip the chapters about these two technologies to save some time....

In my experience, WebStart actually is widely used. But as it doesn't require you to program very differently (you just need to be carefull with ClassLoaders and the like), you could probably defer reading about the details until you need it. Getting an idea about what it actually is couldn't hurt, though. (Ditto for Applets, of course.)


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
