I have an Exit button in an applet and the applet should exit when the user clicks on the exit button. I tried using System.exit(), but it throws Exception.

I am not sure that you want to try and stop the VM. Another way would be to send the browser to a different page when the exit button is hit. Therefore sopping the applet.

That's what I have done as a temporary solution. It would be better if I can exit the VM, just like when a System.exit() is called from a window closing event.

hi
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
class demo extends Applet implements ActionListener
{
public void init(){
Button B1=new Button("rahul");
add(B1);
B1.addActionListener(this);}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{System.exit(0);
}

}
i tried the above .
when the button is pressed the action event System.exit is taking place.
however there is a runtime Security excepiton being raised in the console window.
Regds.
Rahul.

hi sunitha & rahul
it will raise an exception called runtimeexception .
u have to exit vm to exit from the applet.
for that u have to grant permission using policytool.
from the dos prompt enter policytool.
in that window add permission called runtime
& target as exitvm
save the file with extension .pol.come out & run the applet as
appletviewer -J-Djava.seurity.policy="filename.pol" appletfilename
it will work.thanks

Iam not sure whether System.exit() will work when the Applet is embedded in a web-browser because ur trying to close the applet which is in turn embedded in a another container of the web-browser.And the web-browser will always have a window.The other way is to navigate to an another page there by stopping the Applet execution

You can't use System.exit() without raising a security exception.
What you can do is call the applet destroy() method from the applet's stop().
So, create a stop() method which does any cleanup and calls destroy(). Then call stop() from your actionPerformed().
