Yes—because each home computer has a copy of the data and bytecodes.
Often the applet bytecodes are located in the same
directory as the web page (the text file.)
But the code can be anywhere on the web.
If the applet is somewhere else on the web,
code="" will still name the bytecode file.
But now the applet tag must include
codebase="some URL" to point to
the directory where the code is contained.
Don't name the bytecode file in the codebase!
<applet code="ExampleApplet.class" codebase="http://chortle.ccsu.ctstateu.edu/cs151/Notes/appendixA" width="250" height="200"> </applet>
Add the applet tags (above) to the following web page.
This will only work if you are connected to the Web.
If you have FTPed and unzipped these notes onto your own
computer, you may optionally omit the
codebase part of the tag
(because a copy of the applet will be on your hard disk,
unless I forgot to put it in the zip file.)
There is a fairly good chance that this will work. At least, I am amazed when things like this work. When working with applets at home, it is easiest to keep them in the same directory as the web page.
