I'm a PhD student who just put a Java web applet together (first time making an applet) for gathering data online. It works on my computer, but on many others it sputters between the correct graphics and nothing (i.e., white pixels).
You can see the current version at [url removed, login to view]~bradknox/tamerapplet/. I've attached source without the jars that are required to run it, which go just above the 10MB limit.
I've spent a fair amount of time trying to get rid of it. I've improved it significantly but not enough, and I think someone with expertise in Java applets and Swing could fix my applet in less than an hour.
There are six class files, only three of which should be relevant, and a handful of jar files involved. The applet receives graphics from a few drawString() calls, one fill() call, and one drawImage() call that draws a BufferedImage.
To be clear, I'm asking for someone to
1) debug the graphical output of this applet, fix it, and give me working source code, and
2) give me a short explanation of what I was doing wrong.
I look forward to working with you!
