An applet is a small application designed to run within another application.

what is an applet

The term "applet" is sometimes used to describe small programs included with a computer's operating system, it usually refers to Java applets, or small applications written in the Java programming language.

Java applets cannot be run directly by the operating system. Instead, they must run within the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), or within another program that includes a Java plug-in.

If there is no JRE installed, Java applets will not run. Fortunately, Java is freely available for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, which means you can easily download and install the appropriate JRE for your system.

Since Java applets run within the JRE and are not executed by the operating system, they are crossplatform, meaning a single applet can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.

Applets can serve as basic desktop applications, they have limited access to system resources and therefore are not ideal for complex programs.

Examples of applets designed to run in web browsers include calculators, drawing programs, animations, and video games.

In recent years, applets have been slowly replaced by newer technologies such as jQuery and HTML 5.

Some browsers, like Google Chrome, no longer support the <applet> tag, and others, like Apple Safari, do not even enable Java by default.
