       appletviewer - Runs applets outside of a web browser.

       appletviewer [options] url...

              The command-line options separated by spaces. See Options.

       url    The location of the documents or resources to be displayed. You
              can specify multiple URLs separated by spaces.

       The appletviewer command connects to the documents or resources
       designated by urls and displays each applet referenced by the documents
       in its own window. If the documents referred to by urls do not
       reference any applets with the OBJECT, EMBED, or APPLET tag, then the
       appletviewer command does nothing. For details about the HTML tags that
       the appletviewer command supports, see AppletViewer Tags at

       The appletviewer command requires encoded URLs according to the
       escaping mechanism defined in RFC2396. Only encoded URLs are supported.
       However, file names must be unencoded, as specified in RFC2396.

       Note: The appletviewer command is intended for development purposes
       only. For more information, see About Sample/Test Applications and Code

              Starts the Applet Viewer in the Java debugger with the jdb
              command to debug the applets in the document.

       -encoding encoding-name
              Specifies the input HTML file encoding name.

              Passes the string javaoption as a single argument to the Java
              interpreter, which runs the Applet Viewer. The argument should
              not contain spaces. Multiple argument words must all begin with
              the prefix -J. This is useful for adjusting the compiler's
              execution environment or memory usage.
