[Bonsai Image] Demo Java Applets

See my new Javascript implementations of some of these Java applets here. Updated for 2016!

I began creating some of my earliest applets in 1996 to help learn the Java language and to verify that I could correctly deploy applets on a web site and have them accessible from browsers on the web. Then I wrote more applets, just for fun !

Many of these applets were originally developed on the Macintosh using either Metroworks CodeWarrior or the Roaster IDE from Natural Intelligence (I found Roaster to be one of the best environments for developing Java, but, alas, it died a premature death and is no longer being marketed). Other applets were developed using Visual Cafe on Windows NT.
