I got myself into a bet to create a web based paint clone , but I certainly have no idea how to do it, is creating an applet and embed inside html is only option or there is some other more eloquent alternative, I am a java buff so I want to do it the java way, I figured I can do it on desktop(but I don't know how much time it'll take), but what about the web , kindly help me out, I am open to learning new technology but someone have to guide me the path, I'll take care of code myself

Not sure what you mean by "eloquent alternative" -maybe "elegant"?-, but if using someone else's code is OK then check out ImageJ. It runs as an applet and has lots of image editing capabilities.

I mean is there no way of doing it through jsp, javafx, or any other technology for me applet is like a desktop app running on web(I only perceive it that way)
I know my friend is using flex

JavaFX would be an option yes, JSP, I'd doubt it, fancy Javascript? Maybe
