What is Applet?
Not to be confused with the Apple computer company. The applet was initially a reference to a small Java program that is embedded in a Web page and in general refers to any application that is sufficiently small and usually runs within a Web browser. Applets usually are not allowed to access system resources—files or devices (modems, printers, scanners, etc.)—as a security precaution against anyone trying to maliciously take over the local computer.
