These steps describe the creation of a self-signed applet. This is useful for testing purposes. For use of public reachable applets, there will be needed a "real" certificate issued by an authority like VeriSign or Thawte. (See Step 10 - no user will import and trust a self-signed applet from an unkown developer).


The applet needs to run in the plugin, as only the plugin is platform- and browser-independent. And without this independence, it doesn't make sense to use Java programming..
