Default Help Getting Started


I need a little help getting the ball rolling. Just read my first
few pages of Java programming tonight (Ivor Horton's Wrox book).

I downloaded and installed SDK 1.4.2 but have no idea how to execute
the code in the book.

Early on he writes, "if you have compiled an applet and you have included it in a web page stored as "Blah.html" in the current directory on your computer, you can execute it by entering the command:

appletviwer Blah.html

Enter the command where? What current directory? Am I supposed to use the Windows Run dialog with a command prompt or something?

Thanks for any help

Sorry, never mind. I found a tutorial on the Sun site that gave me the lowdown on all the DOS stuff:


in case anyone's interested. Thanks anyway.
