My company has an Applet that is used to interact with a piece of hardware that we make. We have customers that would rather run this application from the command line. I recall that there was a pattern (I think it was called an appletcation) where a Jar file could act as either an Applet or executable Jar. I do not recall the details of making this work. I am sure that with a little time I could figure this out on my own, but I am wondering if you all can point me to an article that talks about how to do this. Alternately, is there a different name that I should be searching for this under?

I don't think this rises to being a pattern, but the https://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/AppletsFaq discusses how to run an applet as an application.
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
