I can't do that because we decided not to use swing in our project( due to some problems which I cannot place here). By the way I tried to simulate the menu by using AWT. but one of my collegues say that it is unconventional to use menus with applets or even to try simulating. can anyone please comment on it.I need an experts comment on this who have experience in web based tech using java. ours is an intranet project.
