It’s clear that the initial bogue bet on Java’s ubiquity in the browser, in the form of applets, never paid off– history, however, has shown that Java found its foothold on the server-side. Nevertheless, because it’s everyone’s bag, applets are still around as I run into them from time to time. Interestingly, Sun has been putting some effort into underlying engine that runs applets (the Java plug-in), which begs the question– are applets still alive? What’s more, if they aren’t (or are on life support as some have suggested), what happened to them?

I still use them. Indeed my current project uses one to act as a bridge between a client process and web-page shown in the browser
