applets in netbeans

Posted 22 August 2010 - 08:31 AM

hey guys,wassup?

I have been working on netbeans IDE 6.9.1.

I need to make an applet program in netbeans but i got myself confused in which type of project should i choose...since i can't choose(logically) a java application because it contans main and applet is windowed applications and not a console based.

my sincere thanks. :dontgetit:

First of all, is it absolutely necessary that you use NetBeans as an IDE?

If you are required to use an IDE, I feel Eclipse makes the process of running applets a lot easier than NetBeans does. Though honestly, the best way to learn is to not use an IDE at all.

Check out THIS link though, it should help you get it up and running in NetBeans.

Hope this helps!

you mean i should work on notepad.
and ya its not mandatory for me to use netbeans i was just told it is good because of its autocompletion facility i dont have to search for methods and i would be able to get familiar with them soon..what your opinion on that :)

yes it helped thnx!

Netbeans simply makes programming easier. However, it takes out a lot of the learning process for beginners. If you can't use the command line and the API, I suggest that you learn how to use them. However, in Netbeans, you will make a Java Application as a priject, but then select Applet under the Run As item.

Notepad, Notepad++, something like that is truly best for when you're starting out. That way you have to check online for documentation instead of just having a list of methods pop up after you type "someClass.". The process of going online, looking through documentation, and finding what will suite you best will make it stick with you a lot more than auto-completion.

Though if you're already at a point where you feel you know enough anyway, or really just don't want to bother, Eclipse is a good IDE. Like I said, I just feel like Eclipse is simpler. Perhaps just a personal preference.


Do what you want really, but just a suggestion.

The Java docs are actually really good. You can browse for the class here: http://download-llnw...ase/6/docs/api/

Or, you can type "classname Java 6" into Google and 99% of the time, the API will be the first link.

I use Geany for my small pieces of code. I like it because it has syntax highlighting and even has a console window when you compile/run it which shows you the commands that are being executed.

Good choice. When you have bigger projects though (more than say 2-3 classes), I'd suggest moving up to an IDE like Eclipse or Netbeans. Personally, I use Eclipse, but both work fine.
