We have a requirement for a drag & drop in a browser window. We generally do stuff with dynamic html. Since the drag & drop ability of DHTML is not the best in the world we were thinking of doing an applet. With the transferhandler classes it should work fine without much of a fuss. It is just that it can also be done in DHTML (more complex i presume) and would be faster. The applet would take time to download but would/should work pretty fast after that. What are your ideas of which way to go..applets OR DHTML. any other pros and cons you would want to share ?
Also since we have no applets elsewhere in the application was wondering what the deploying issues would be...if we build it in jdk1.4 then i presume a jre1.4 would also be needed in production sites to learn the applet ?
