The appletviewer tool loads and runs an applet.
Use the first form to test applets specified by tag. The URL should
resolve to an HTML document from which the appletviewer will
extract applet tags. The APPLET, EMBED and OBJECT tags are supported.
If a given document contains multiple applet tags, all the applets
will be loaded, with each applet appearing in its own window.
Likewise, when multiple URLs are specified, each applet tag instance
is given its own window. If a given document contains no recognized
tags the appletviewer does nothing.
Use the second form to test an applet in development. This form
allows applet tag attributes to be supplied on the command line. Only
one applet may be specified using the -code option. The
-code option overrides the URL form any URLs specified will
appletviewer -code Test.class -param datafile,data.txt
gcjwebplugin uses the third form to communicate with the
appletviewer through named pipes.
