    That is completely open to you and without more details we cannot suggest anything.

    You could build a simply stand alone java application
    You could build a web application with java (using one of multiple possibilities)

    You could even drop java and do it as a simple webpage with javascript....
    (Or any other tool / language that you like to use!)

    The problem with Java Applets are the restrictions and security risks. An addon is required to use applets and people might not want to install the addon. Or the security limitations are to strict so you cannot do what you would like to do inside the applet.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

    I would like to create scientific webpage (in Physics) using WordPress (like NASA or Home | National-Academies.org | Where the Nation Turns for Independent, Expert Advice), and add some applications for this webpage, for example: scientific applications, calculator, app. about explanation of some physical laws, animations.
    So from what I have to start to create applications?
    I heard that to create RIA we can use Flash, JavaFX or Silverlight. If there 3 platforms I don't know which is better to use.

    Or (as Konrad says) plain old Javascript and HTML.
    Which, since it's a web page, would be my choice.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    That is one side of it, the other side that influences even the people who don't care about the security aspect is that applets provide a terrible user experience in comparison to say Flash or as you correctly suggest yourself: Javascript.

    @Zazie:
    I too vote for going down a path of HTML + Javascript. Keywords to research in such a case:

    - Single Page Applications (SPAs) - Single-page application - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    - JQuery
    - AngularJS, ember.js, Node.js

    The latter three are javascript frameworks which would take the place of using a Java web framework; they are most definitely not the only ones in existence but to me they're the better starting points. If you check out their demo features you might see if it is something that matches your wishes.

    Bootstrap might be worth a look, for the layout aspects.
    If you're looking at a calculator, bootstrap uses a grid-based structure for layouts.
