From http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/index.html :
"The most common Java programs are applications and applets. Applications are standalone programs, such as the HotJava browser. Applets are similar to applications, but they don't run standalone. Instead, applets adhere to a set of conventions that lets them run within a Java-compatible browser."

The difference is that applets run inside a browser, applications don't. The similarity is that neither of them have anything to do with JSPs or servlets whatsoever.

...and so, I'm moving this thread to Applets forum.
BTW the name 'neeleshjjain' does not comply with the JavaRanch naming policy. Please choose one that meets the requirements.
Thanks!
