The applet does not run. all i get is a message saying the applet is not initialised.

package applets;

private boolean isStandalone = false;

//Get a parameter value
public String getParameter(String key, String def) {
return isStandalone ? System.getProperty(key, def) :
(getParameter(key) != null ? getParameter(key) : def);
}

//Construct the applet
public BoxApplet() {
}

//Initialize the applet
public void init() {
try {
jbInit();
}
catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}

public void paint(Graphics g) {
drawX(g, 30, 50, 300, 200, 10);
}

private void drawX(Graphics g, int x, int y, int width, int height, int inset) {
Graphics gim = g.create();
gim.setColor(Color.yellow);
gim.fillRect(x, y, width, height);
gim.setColor(Color.black);
gim.drawRect(x, y, width, height);
int innerWidth = width - 2*inset;
