Now a days we do not use much javaapplets in our applications for user interface. I also use HTML, can you please let me know which one is advantageous over the other and in which situation should one consider using HTML over Applets and vice versa.
That depends on your criteria. Personally, I prefer HTML based web applications because they are easier, and better supported across multiple browsers. For dynamic stuff in HTML, you need to use AJAX or Flash stuff.
Applet startup times are pretty slow; there are also reports that Sun is stepping away from applets in favor of JavaFX. While the libraries will probably never leave java, they will tend to look pretty old and dated- I think that most applets tend to look pretty awful.
I'd definately recommend HTML / Ajax- they will work in more places and on more browsers.
