Sorry if I ask a question which may be inappropriate in this Forum.

I am badly in search of Website addresses where I can download
free Java applications ( or applets ) which are professional in the
sense that they might be an alternative to .exe files on my Windows 7
system.

For instance at this moment I have jedit 4.3 on my machine.

But are there spreadsheet applications on the market, to name only
one category ?

Has anyone a good Website address where I can download such programs
if possible ordered in categories ( as is the case with Windows .exe programs ).

It would be great if the source code of the programs could also be studied
to see how complex programs are realized.
But this is of minor importance to me.

There is the forum software that we build CodeRanch on - JForum.

You can also do a search for Java projects inside FreshMeat.

I don't know that there is a site that collects such apps. The only Java app I use regularly (aside from IDEs, web apps and my own apps) is CyberDuck, an FTP/SFTP client.

Thank you.

I think especially freshmeat.net is a good starting point.
