Is it possible to use an Applet class inside an
application. For example, I would like to create
a game which will use an Applet class to produce
a special effect on the image used.
Thanx in advance!

Yes, applets are components similar to any of the other components. If you are only going to use it in an application, you may want to look at JApplet.
Also, applets do unfortunatly expect some environment information (AppletStub and AppletContext) that is normally provided by the browser. You can implement these interfaces and simulate them yourself. I did it once and it is not too bad.
If you get stuck or want copies of the classes that I used just email me and I'll be happy to send them along.
Hope this helps.
