In this internet class that I've been in for four weeks I've only been trying to code in the stand-alone version. My question is - was it a mistake to skip over the "optional" section that referenced applets. Should I go back to the chapter and try to learn the Applet way instead. Or I may wait till this class is over in four weeks. I think I understand that the applets are for use on the web. Is it better to just continue trying to learn in the stand-alone way. Mind you-it's hard to find books that talk way down to my level on stand-alone programming. Even Java for Dummies talked about applets! What's the verdict - keep learning by stand-alone or applete.
I think you should continue to learn about stand-alone apps first. Applets just add another level of complexity that you should wait to learn about. If you can master the basics of Java with stand-alone apps, learning applets will be much easier.
I think that you should continue to learn the stand-alone stuff. The applet stuff is nice to know, but if you know the stand-alone stuff well, you'll be better served should you ever need to do applets. Just my 2 cents.
