Documentation Contents
The JavaTM 2 SDK contains a demos directory that includes applets, applications, and sample code that demonstrate various features of the Java 2 Platform. The available demos are described in the following sections.


The applet demos are located in the Java 2 SDK's demo/applets directory. To run the applets, use the appletviewer or your web browser to open the file named example1.html in each of the applets' subdirectories. The demo applets are also available on the web site, and links to the online applets are provided below.

Applets can run in AppletViewer or in web browers when the JavaTM Plug-in product is installed. The AppletViewer is provided with the Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition, in the SDK's bin directory. For information about how to use the AppletViewer and other SDK tools, see Java 2 SDK Tools and Utilities.
