Example of displaying applet in JSP


In this example, we are simply displaying applet in jsp using the jsp:plugin tag. You must have MouseDrag.class file (an applet class file) in the current folder where jsp file resides. You may simply download this program that contains index.jsp, and MouseDrag.class files to run this application.
