They are small application modules, which help a user to interact with the web page.
Applets are miniature programs. The name comes from the term “appli-cations” which is one variety of a software program. Applets is just a cute name for what is generally called a utility program, but it's used almost exclusively in the Windows environment. A utility program is designed to do one little function, generally in the service of housekeeping for your computer system, rather than actually producing something. The term “applet,” though, implies that these little programs are actually doing something practical, beyond what a utility would do.
Programs that run inside net browsers, usually in Java and typically involving modestly interactive graphics. http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/applet/index.html
An applet is a program designed to be executed from within another application.
Refer to Java programs which are embedded in web pages.
A small program that can run inside another program to provide additional capabilities, for example, Java in Netscape, or Notepad in Windows.
Applets are small applications. The term has more recently been used to describe small Java programs that are downloaded from the internet and execute in your browser. Applets can be developed to meet your specific business needs by Aptek. There are many applet banks on the internet, providing both popular and amusing functionality. Refer to our links page - technical.
Literally a small application usually embedded into a web page. Often written in Java (a cross platform development language), applets are not that common today, as server side technologies have matured considerably.
Mini-programs (programmed in JAVA programing language) that can be downloaded quickly and used by any computer equipped with a Java-enabled browser.
These are programs that are made from the language JAVA. They are similar to modules and extend the capabilties of the browser. Applets are relatively safe compared to ActiveX since it executed in a sandbox.
Small programs that run in Web browsers; usually written in Java. Typically used to enhance the human factors available in HTML.
Small downloadable programs run within a web browser, often used in web pages to add dynamic content, such as animated graphics. Generally written in Java.
Very compact computer programs, written in Java, designed to be downloaded by web browsers to provide more dynamic and interactive web pages.
Small, re-usable chunks of programming code in Java. They allows for quicker transfer over the Internet, meaning many new programs can now become directly interactive, incorporating animation, sound, and more. (See also Java, ShockWave, and VRML).
Applets are executable programs written for the World Wide Web using the Java programming language. Applets is also a term given to small applications. (See Applications)
Java's advantage is in that it is composed of many smaller, re-usable chunks of programming code, called "applets" (short for "applications"). This allows for quicker transfer over the internet, meaning many new programs will now be able to become directly interactive, incorporating animation, sound, and more. (See also Java, Shockwave, and VRML)
A program designed to be executed from within another application. Unlike an application, applets cannot be executed directly from the operating system. Web browsers, which are often equipped with Java virtual machines, can interpret applets from Web servers. Because applets are small in files size, cross-platform compatible, and highly secure (can't be used to access users' hard drives), they are ideal for small Internet applications accessible from a browser.
Applets are little programs designed to run inside of a Web browser. There is nothing more magical about applets than any other kind of application you run. But applets were one of the first technologies that could animate Web pages and make them interactive and so sparked a lot of excitement.
Small software applications that download with a Web document, enhancing its presentation on your screen and eliminating the need for specialized viewing software to be permanently installed on your computer.
Small software applications that download with a document, and eliminate the need for specialized viewing software to be permanently installed on your computer. Applets respond to user inputs and as a result, can support a discovery approach to learning (e.g., users can adjust the temperature, pressure, and volume of a gas in a â€œvirtualâ€ closed system to discover the effects and relationships between these variables).
Applet s are small programs written in Java and embedded within web pages. Most recent browsers can run these small programs if you have Java installed on your computer. Keyword(s): Applets, small programs, Java
Small application programs that can be embedded within a Web page. Applets cannot be directly activated from the operating system.
