I have the source java code for a rubik's cube java applet. I want to be able to save the game at any point. I've been told that I need to run the code as a java application.

I have general programming knowledge of C, VB, and a little C++, so possibly if someone can give me a few general instructions, I may be able to convert the code myself. This is a one-off java job. I don't really have any need to learn java other than to convert the applet to a java application.

Though this is an area I'm not very familiar with, I believe that letting the applet write a save file to your local hard drive is merely a matter of granting it that particular ability via Java's security policy. This may involve signing the applet's JAR (all done with the JDK tools, so no need to buy a "real" validated certificate from Verisign). You might try the Applets forum here.

If you want to convert it into an application, you have to create a top-level frame/window to hold the components of the applet. This, again, is probably something many people in the Applets forum have done.

Writing that save file will be something more people can help with.
