    Default Just starting with Applets

    Hello. For November, more or less, I have to do a schoolwork that consists on creating a Java Applet that should represent the fall of an object, to see how the physical phenomenom is.
    Some months ago I started learning some basic Java, from the Blue-J book; I think that i arrived to chapter 6... Then, I realized that I needed to start learning applets. So here I am, reading and translating to spanish (as I'm from Spain) the tutorial from the Oracle website, Lesson: Java Applets (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment) , as a teacher recommended me; I'm now at the "Developing an Applet" chapter. I want to know if it's really the most basic Applet guide, and then, I can learn to create Applets just starting there. If you think that there are better guides, or just more understandable, please tell me them.

    THANKS!

    Then, I realized that I needed to start learning applets.
    The tutorial is perfect (all official java tutorials are), but for your "mission" I would just continue your book(s). It is rather trivial to make an applet from a gui-application (except that an applet has security-restrictions like not being allowed to access the disk). Also deployment is a bit more tricky. All info, on Applets as well as on simulating falling objects is worth learning, but this tutorial has much more then needed for your project. While working on your physics-programming I would try to deploy a separate test-applet just to know how it works, but the conversion app=>applet will not be the big deal in the end.
    No bug ever had to calculate its fitnessfunction.

    Hi,
    The books you are working with, would work fine but i would suggest you to have a look at "Headfirst" series of Java to be crystal clear with your concepts.
    Apart from that whatever Jodokus offered you would be good.
