I'm quite new to Java and I've only created a few applets. I would like to show them to my friends,but every time I try to put them in an HTML file I get an error:

The applets work perfectly fine, this is an example:

This is the HTML code I'm using:

The HTML file's name is test.html.
Does someone have a solution or explanation?

Why are you using Capital Letters in your html?

How are you opening the applets? Are you using appletviewer? Or are you opening them with a web browser?

I copied the html code off a tutorial website...

I use Eclipse to write and open my applets.

Experienced devos will generally use all lower-case for their HTML. And with HTML 5 beginning to tendril into pages, it's also considered a good idea to follow XHTML "well-formedness" rules (quote attributes, don't leave off end tags, etc) as HTML 5 will allow either loose or well-formed syntax.

Oh, and please indent.

The class file must be in the same directory as the HTML file for this to work.

I'm not sure what the problem is. But i always use extends JApplet , not Applet.
Make sure you upload the class you specified in your html code.
I agree. Here's the link:
