Robot Support for Testing Java Applets and Applications
A Java applet is a Java program embedded inside a Web page or displayed with an
applet viewer. Java applications are stand-alone programs that require a Java Virtual
Machine (JVM) in order to run. Java applications create their own windows and are
not embedded inside Web pages.
Support for Testing Java Applets
Robot provides support for testing Java applets that run in the following
environments:
Internet Explorer 4.0 or later with the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine (JVM) or
with the Sun plug-in
Netscape 4.x or 4.7x with the Netscape JVM or with the Sun plug-in
Microsoft Appletviewer
Sun Appletviewer from the Java Developer Kit (JDK) 1.1.4 or later

Robot provides support for testing stand-alone Java applications that run in the
following environments:
Sun JDK 1.1.4 to 1.4
Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.1.4 to 1.4
Microsoft JVM (jview) 3.1
You can create Robot scripts that play back Java applications under Rational Quantify
