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
