"company",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Hi "Company"
NO. in order to run a Java Application/Applet you need jre installed in your system at least.(No need of windows OS.)

Probably should be in the JFC/AWT forum. Anyway, as far as I know you will not be able to run an app with heavyweight components without an underlying windowing (not necessarily MS Windows) system. I've not seen a successful installation of the Sun JRE on DOS. There's supposedly a free VM that works with DOS though.
