convert application to applet in netbeans
I have managed to locate a tutorial that explains in a way that I understand how to create an applet in netbeans.
Can anyone suggest any apart from netbeans.
Thanks in advance
Does your netbeans application subclass JFrame? If so, re-write it so that it subclasses JPanel (or better, produces a JPanel). Then you can place this JPanel into a JFrame or a JApplet as you desire.

I have to admit you have lost me, my application is structured using a number of classes with a Main and a Jpanel gui.
Does this answer what you are asking me
We are not actually being taught java, apparently the methodology is more important, education in the uk is so wonderful!

i suppose it's a trade off for your class, then. when in class, would you rather learn a specific shortcut to convert a swing app into an applet, or actually learn concepts that will help you organize your thoughts, encourage you to research more, and overall make you a better programmer?

I would prefer the having some idea of what we are doing rather than just going through the motions however I am trying to pick up more information regarding Java but this is as well as doing the work required.

Have a method that creates the GUI and returns a JPanel. Have your main class subclass JApplet. Then use init() to add the JPanel to getContentPane() and use main() to add the JPanel to a new JFrame.
Bingo - an applet and an application

Yep, I agree 100% with OrangeDog. Creating your GUI this way will give you loads of flexibility. Shoot you can even place your GUI into the JPanel of another GUI if you so desire.
