Name appletviewer - The Java Applet Viewer.

The appletviewer command allows you to run applets outside of a web browser.

SYNOPSIS appletviewer [ options ] urls ...

DESCRIPTION The appletviewer command connects to the documents or resources desig- nated by urls and displays each applet referenced by the documents in its own window. Note: if the documents referred to by urls do not ref- erence any applets with the OBJECT, EMBED, or APPLET tag, then appletviewer does nothing. For details on the HTML tags that appletviewer supports, see AppletViewer Tags @ http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/tools/appletview- ertags.html.

Note: The appletviewer is intended for development purposes only. See About Sample / Test Applications and Code for more information.

Note: The appletviewer requires encoded URLs according to the escaping mechanism defined in RFC2396. Only encoded URLs are supported. However, file names must be unencoded, as specified in RFC2396.

OPTIONS -debug Starts the applet viewer in the Java debugger, jdb(1), thus allowing you to debug the applets in the document.

-encoding encoding name Specify the input HTML file encoding name.

-Jjavaoption Passes through the string javaoption as a single argument to the Java interpreter which runs the appletviewer. The argument should not contain spaces. Multiple argument words must all begin with the prefix -J, which is stripped. This is useful for adjusting the compilers execution environment or memory usage.
