I am writing a board game for the web, trying to decide if I should use applet or JAppet. Is JApplet and Swing components supported by jre 1.4+ only? I want the game to be very accesible even to user who uses an old browser that has only jre1.2 or earlier. But Swing has much better gui support than plain awt. For example I want to customize a Label using fancy graphics and borders, and it seems difficult to do using awt. Has anyone successfuly created a fancy applet using just awt? For example, are the games at games.yahoo.com creating using just awt or do they have Swing components also?
thanks for the advices!!
