I am reading book Data Structures and Algorithms in Java (2nd Edition) by Robert Lafore. However, I couldn't use the applets mentioned in the book... That applets cannot be displayed functionally in firefox (other browsers didn't work either.).. I was trying to convert those applets into applications... However, the source code is not writable..even if I change it in IntelliJ.  Is anyway I could use these old applets? So devastated...

Perhaps a more modern book is called for?

Is the old appletviewer tool still around? If so, that should be able to run applets.

It's in the bin directory of my Java 8 SDK.

I'd still argue that learning to write Applets is a waste of time.
