Applets and Web Pages

So far I have been concentrating on applets. The applet is normally the entire web page. The HTML for the web page is merely to name the applet, and give it a size. However this is not normal. You usually have some other presentation in the HTML page. Therefore I did a more realistic project that integrated applet output with the markup from the HTML source.

I had an exercise from my textbook dealing with times. In Java, you can get the number of milliseconds since 1970. This feature has been encapsulated with the Date class. The default constructor of Date initializes the object to the current date and time. Use DateFormat to choose how you want to show the date. Even though the class is abstract, you can still call the static members.
