Description Jesse Glick 2004-09-28 15:52:11 UTC
We provisionally put in some basic applet support
into j2seproject for D since there was no time to
do proper support. We should factor this out into
either the web app project type or a new project
type (or something) as soon as feasible. Filing
for tracking purposes.
Comment 1 Petr Jiricka 2004-10-19 15:36:03 UTC
Will not be done for NetBeans 4.0, setting target milestone to future.
Comment 2 Petr Jiricka 2005-02-21 13:54:46 UTC
Adjusting priority. According to the NetBeans quality criteria:

this is a P4 bug: "incorrect behavior that doesn't affect functionality"
Comment 3 pslechta 2008-08-15 10:45:59 UTC
Is this issue still active? Can we close it?
Comment 4 Tomas Zezula 2008-08-15 10:50:27 UTC
This issues is not yet fixed.
The applet support was injected into the j2seproject module in the times of NB 4.0 with goal to create a separate module handling applets correctly.
But it was never done.

Comment 5 Petr Jiricka 2008-08-15 11:45:10 UTC
I agree it's not completely done, but the current trend is that Applets are getting more and more merged with Java Web
Start, for which J2SE Project is the primary container. So Applet support probably naturally fits into J2SE project. 

There are also related enhancement requests that call for a special application type for applets, see issue 139872 and
the issues it depends on. And the other part of the workflow is using applets in web applications, for which I filed a
separate issue 144037.

I suggest we close this issue as duplicate of 139872.

Closing as per Petr J's suggestion
