Is it possible to open and use a java applet from a desktop swing application?

What would be the point of that? Instead of making it an applet (by extending JApplet), make it a window (by extending JFrame), and you're mostly done.

Or is it someone else's applet that you don't have code for? You can always open a web page that refers to the applet; the last item on this FAQ page tells you how.

You can always create the applet yourself and set its AppletContext to a small stub implementation, then call the init() and start() methods. You can also call JApplet.getContentPane() and reinstall that component in a JFrame's content pane, assuming the applet doesn't assume too much about its environment.

The MainFrame class already does most of that, if you want to go down that road.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
