I am trying to run a simple Applet with the following code,

with the following command line :

But I am getting the following error,

and a Applet window pops up, and at the bottom of the window it says

I am following instructions from a book, and according to the book it should work, but it isn't.

What am I doing wrong?

When you start the appletviewer, are you cd'd to a place where the viewer can find SimpleApplet.class? The easiest thing would be to be in the same directory.

Yes, I go to the folder where I have SimpleApplet.class. appletviewer program in on my ubuntu path. So I can essentially use the following appletviewer command to run the java file.

Doesn't appletviewer need an HTML file?

The alternate to using a separate html file is to add the html content in the source file.

And I have tried using a separate html file, but result is the same. I get the similar error.

Hmm, I just tried it on my system and it works. Did you use javac to compile the source file?

This applet is working fine on my machine. May be you are not saving this file with SimpleApplet name. So class not found exception is coming.
