Doubt in showDocument() method

I am trying to open a new HTML page from inside a java program.
As a general procedure I got the appletcontext and called showDocument
method. All works fine. But my doubt is whether stop() method will be
called after the new html page got opened or not.(When the new html
page opens, it actually opens over the original applet window and thus
the control goes there automatically) Therefore strictly speaking, as
the applet loses its focus, stop method should be called.
To check this I tried the following ways.
1. Wrote the following in java prg.
public void stop(){
System.out.println("Stops");}
2. When running from the browser, this command is not getting executed,
means I am not getting the consol output(even after some deliberate acts
of closing the new html page several times etc)
3. Alternatively when trying to run the prg thru' appletviewer, the
new html page itself is not getting opened. I don't know whether my
hypothesis is correct or not. I also don't know how to check/validate
it.
Please help.
Thanks in advance..........

Hi Kumaresan,
It has been a while but I have had a similar problem a long time ago. Anyway I think your hypothesis is correct. Sorry that this is all I can offer but it was quit a while ago.
Good luck,
Matt
