Chapter 37. Developing Java Applets > HelloApplet as a Standalone Application

HelloApplet as a Standalone Application

Recall that our applet example (HelloApplet) ran in a Graphical User Interface (GUI) provided by the Web browser. You don't need to limit your Java GUI programming to writing applets that run only inside of Web pages—you can write a standalone application with its own graphical environment.

It is often more appropriate—or more convenient—to write a standalone Java application. A Servlet—a Java program that runs on your Web server—is one example of a Java application; it runs in the environment of a Web server such as Sun's Java Server. The HelloGUI program described here is another example.
