are some java applets, written by me, which you will
find entertaining and/or useful. These java applets
were written when I needed them.
Sometimes Java applets are not visible properly in
browsers. They appear as if someone has taken an
eraser and erased parts of the applets. If it happens,
you need to bring the complete applet in view by
scrolling. Then just minimize the browser window and
then restore it. The applet will be visible in its
Color and Font Chooser for Java and HTML
I used to face great
difficulty in choosing background or foreground colors
for my applications as the colors provided in
java.awt.Color are too few. In the beginning I
used to randomly select three integers for the
constructor of Color class, apply it, and then see the
effect. If not satisfied (which was almost always the
case ), then the integers had to be changed, the code
compiled and run again to see the effect. After
numerous trials I was able to get a color of my
choice. To make things easier this applet was written.
Of course, if one is using javax.swing package this
applet is not required, as a class for this very
purpose is provided. But for awt buffs this applet
would be of considerable help.
This applet also allows
one try out different fonts. So, using this applet
will let you find out the ideal combination of
background color, foreground color and font for your
applications or for use in web pages.

This applet is for
learning and practicing arithmetic. It just keeps
presenting new problems to solve as long as the child
keeps on practicing. School going kids can practice
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, LCM
and HCF using this applet. During the practice
session, one can keep track of score.
This can be a great tool
for teaching arithmetic to children.
Alphabet and Digits
It helps a child learn
alphabet, colors, shapes and digits in a playful way.
Kids would simply love it. It will almost be like an
educating game to them. The applet will keep on
displaying your choices at certain intervals of time (
you can configure the interval too). Like the other
two applets, this applet has also been very popular.
This applet too can be a
great teaching tool for nursery or pre school kids.
Linear Equation Solver
This applet solves
linear equations. Presently, it solves equations with
two unknown variables. The applet with more unknown
variables will be uploaded here as soon as it is
