run Java applet from command line

Yes they still exist. Java applets. Now and then you come across one of them but your browser complains. You don’t have the plugin installed or the applet is not certified and looks very insecure to the computer,…

You are a system administrator or even a java expert, but you don’t know how to fix these warnings. At least you don’t want to know it. All you want is to run this applet. No wonder that java never became widely accepted on desktops.

But hey, there’s an alternative way to run the applet: If you have java installed, you can use the appletviewer command line tool:

appletviewer http://www.example.com/path/to/the/website/containing/the/applet.html

This will pop up the applet just like a normal application.
