If you'd like to apply your acumen of applets and applications, the following activities are suggested:
- Check out the Java Applet Ratings Service website at www.jars.com and use the search term "headline" to see links and descriptions to all the applets that have been written to display news headlines. Each of these applets uses parameters to modify the text that is displayed.
- Using the Root application as a guide, create a NewRoot application that can display the square root of 625.
To see a Java program that implements the second activity, visit the book's website at www.java24hours.com.
