    Default applet class inside java.applet.* or java.awt.*


    i am new to programming in java,i had bit of confusion on the packages section of java.neways here's the thing:

    how can the applet class be a subclass/inherited from awt. panel,awt.container and awt.component ,when it actually declared in the the java.applet.* package.Is the entire awt package inside the applet package?.sorry for being sucha noob!

    i would be really gratefull towards you if you can brief me on the above topic.

    Kind Regards,

    The applet and awt packages are separate, but you can inherit from classes in other packages. java.applet.Applet extends java.awt.Panel. From the source code:

    Java Code:
    package java.applet;
    import java.awt.*;
    //(Other imports and comments)
    public class Applet extends Panel {
    // (class stuff)
    Hope that helps.
