Please, can someone knidly show me the steps involved in calling up an applet from another applet. For instance, clicking a button in an applet application to call up another applet window.

What exactly do you mean by "calling up an applet" - do you want a new browser window to open showing the web page with the second applet, or should the current page by replaced by it? Either way, you need to call "getAppletContext" in the Applet class, which will return an AppletContext object. By calling the showDocument method on that object you can achieve both cases.
I agree. Here's the link:
