The Applet Class

As mentioned, all applets are subclasses of the Applet class. Applet inherits the following superclasses defined by the AWT: Component, Container, and Panel. Thus, an applet has access to the full functionality of the AWT.

In addition to the methods described in the preceding sections, Applet contains several others that give you detailed control over the execution of your applet. All of the methods defined by Applet are shown in Table 14-1.
