The only way I know to debug an applet is by using the
print stmts (like any other application ofcourse).
Is there any other way or any debugger product etc.....
I am using appletviewer to view the applets.
ps: I searched in the forum, but could hardly find
any responses to a similar qstn.
Any responses/links etc will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Madhav,
Well, there is actually a debugger ( called JDB ) that comes with the JDK... you can make it run on an applet by using the debug option with appletviewer :

However, a word of warning beforehand, JDB is kinda hard to use... Just start it up and see what I mean!
I would also assume that most of the big commercial IDEs would come with some kind of debugger that will work with applets.
HTH,
-Nate

There are also some IDE's which you can download for free which support debuging of applets. JBuilder from Borland, Visual Age from IBM, Forte for Java from sun ...
