Download Applets in Java
Java applets are the classes embedded in web pages for some functionalities. As we know, a Java class contains the code of particular functionality, and if we want the same functionality, we can download and use the applet.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to download Java applets from web pages.
Step-By-Step Process to Download Applets in Java From Web Pages
Not every site gives access to the Java applet embedded in them, but we can still download others that we can access. For example, the link below:
The page shown above contains a Java applet, but we cannot see it. Let’s see how to download the Java applet from the link above.

After locating the
.classapplet file, we got the path and name information below.
CODE = "DR_DFG_RTwarble.DFG_RTwarble.class" JAVA_CODEBASE = "http://www.digital-recordings.com/www-dfg/www-dfg-warble/classes/"
CODEcontains the applet’s name, and the
JAVA_CODEBASEhas the path where the Java applet is located.
Create a URL from the info above. Using

The URL should look like this:
Run the URL above in your browser, and the applet will be downloaded or opened in the browser.
As we can see from the output,
Day by day, the security of the web is improving, and websites are not allowing access to the server code. Most of the time, you might not be able to download the applet from the desired sites.
