What is the difference between an applet and an application?
Please some one tell me. What is the difference between an applet and an application?
An applet is a small program that runs and exists as part of a webpage. It should be accessible to anyone who can get to that page. In general it is dependent on a web browser to function. A lot of your web based games are java applets.
Also, applets run in what some people call a "sandbox" which protects your computer from malicious programming.
The sandbox works in reverse too, as the designers of the applet are cut off from much of your computer's resources.
A java application is a full fledged program (much like like ms paint, wordpad, etc) which has less restrictions than the above.
I'm sure there is a more technical definition but this should get the point across.
