I remember several years ago folks were very excited about applets and applet-servlet communication using Java RMI and other techniques. Recently it seems applets are much less popular and folks would perfer to write their own standalone GUI interfaces instead of using a browser. Why did folks become disillusioned with applets and are they still disillusioned?
Hello Siegfried. One of the main reasons is that using either RMI or Applet-Servlet communication can be sometimes hard to code and maintain. Currently there is a project called SwingML that is inovating the way applets are used today. You can get more information at http://swingml.sourceforge.net
