jdk1.1.5 Demo Launcher
M. Gallant 1/98
demoframe is a jdk1.1.5 standalone Java application
which provides a GUI interface for launching the jdk1.1.5
appletviewer.exe application on most of the jkd1.1.5 demo
examples implementing 1.1 methods.
Since many versions of
Navigator don't fully support Java 1.1, the appletviewer is
required to run applets using 1.1 functionality. demoframe
implements the ActionListener interface to provide event
responses to the button-clicks. The actionPerformed method
constructs the full DOS path specification corresponding to
the Button name (assuming jdk1.1.5 used the default installation
directory names and paths) and spawns the appletviewer application
on the selected demo.
To use this Java application, download the source code demoframe.java,
compile it using a Java compiler supporting Java 1.1+. Change directories
to that containing demoframe.class, and run it using:java demoframe
Select the button corresponding to the demo applet you want to view, and
wait a few seconds for the appletviewer to start.
