The main difference is that JApplet contains
a root pane, so it has a content pane and a
glass pane. There are some other differences
too, but nothing huge.

Go ahead and take a look at the javadocs for
each class and you can see the differences
yourself.

hi, sorry if I've ruined this thread, but you mentioned something about a root pane, and I think thats got sumthign to do with my problem.
If its not too much trouble, could you take a quick look.

I have a JApplet as shown here:


And also a normal java class (PacmanGame) that extends JPanel:

I'm trying to insert the addKeyListener(...) method into the constructor
of PacmanGame, but I'm not sure how to do it. I think it has something to do with the contentPane, but I dont have a frame here, everything is being displayed in the HTML file that calls PacmanApplet.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks
