public class BasicsDemo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int sum = 0;
for (int current = 1; current <= 10; current++) {
sum += current;
System.out.println("Sum = " + sum);

The output from this program is:

Sum = 55

I compiled the following prog. and got the following message in appletviewer: applet not initialized.

This was the following message at the C Prompt:
C:\Program Files\Java>appletviewer BasicsDemo.html
java.lang.ClassCastException: BasicsDemo
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.createApplet(
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.runLoader(

Thanks Brent

Appletviewer is used to run/test Applets. Your program is not an Applet. You are getting a cast exception because your class do not extend the java.applet.Applet class.
