How do I debug an Applet? Will any of the interactive debuggers work?

Serge Knystautas

Most IDE's will support building and debugging an applet. You might face issues if your applet greatly depends on particular document base or codebases, but you can generally work around this by using the settings of your IDE. I used VisualAge and VisualCafe to debug many an applet, although early on I had to do many workarounds to duplicate security constraints. The JDK 1.2 made this much easier to reproduce though.

Consider also Forte and JBuilder.
