Why use a JApplet instead of just the Class code?

So basically I'm looking back to the HTML class I took about year ago. One section we used a Java class that would display text like a rolling credits. So I want to know what exactly are the main differences with this? I realized that when I was making my class that I used a regular JFrame Form, but realized that there is a JApplet and Form as well. The JApplet code says Creates a new JFC (Swing) applet. An applet is a Java class that can run in any Java-enabled browser. Which I knew, and this is what I will do, but I'm curious if there is any big difference? I know Applets have things like signing certifications and such, but what else?


Thanks,

~JO

As opposed to what?

It almost sounds like you expect to be able to run Java in the browser without an Applet, and that's not going to happen.

Are you sure that wasn't Javascript?

I tried to attached the CreditRoll.class file, but The Ranch says they don't like .class or .zip..... Apparently it opens up as JNLP and says it's an applet in the console... I cannot open the file in my IDE it says "no sources."

I guess that answers my question about it having to be an applet. Didn't really make much sense to me at all.


@Bear not at all, I was curious exactly what was going on in the CreditRoll.class.

I couldn't edit, so sorry for the double post. I forgot to ask how exactly was this code created that I couldn't open it "without it's sources?" Is that the "classLoader" as mentioned in the Applet FAQ?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
