Java Applets

Despite the similarity of their names, JavaScripts and Java applets are not the same thing at all. As I pointed out earlier, JavaScripts are usually (but not always) fairly small pieces of code that are embedded in a Web page's HTML code. Java applets, on the other hand, are complete programs, written in the Java language, that are called by and may even appear within a Web page but are not part of that page. Java applets can be database interfaces, games, or any number of other applications.

You don't write Java applets in GoLive. For that, you'll need Java development tools and enough knowledge of the Java language to create applets. You connect existing applets to GoLive pages, specifying the appearance of the applet primarily within the applet itself. HTML (and GoLive) allows you to specify basic size, spacing, and alignment options, but the rest is up to the applet developer. You can preview applets in GoLive because, like newer Web browsers, GoLive supports Java.
