Default Can't get the first example to work


I just started "Beginning Java 2" and I am trying to get the applet in the first example to run. When I execute "appletviewer MyFirstApplet.HTML", the window pops up, but I get the message "applet not inialized" at the bottom.

In the command box, I get a bunch of message, starting with
java.lang.ClassFormatErro: first1 (Bad magic number)

Here is first1.class:

import javax.swing.JApplet;
import java.awt.Graphics;

public class first1 extends JApplet
   public void paint(Graphics g)
      g.drawString("To climb a ladder, start at the bottom rung", 20, 90);

Thanks for any help.

I figured it out.

I didn't realize the class file was the compiled object and not the source file. I just renamed the source to ".Java" and compiled it.
