i remember back whe java2 first came out back in 2000 that i didnt use swing components but stuck with awt components because it was so much easier to imbed the applet in the web page using the applet tag compared to having to use some other tag and having to check which browser the user had. have things improved since then?
PS: that is the longest sentence with no commas i think i have ever written.

Well, since then, nobody uses Netscape anymore, and Microsoft has stopped shipping their broken JVM. So if you're going to use an applet, you more or less have to use the Java Plug-in, which is sturdier and better-implemented than it once was. If you're using that, then you can definitely use Java2!
