Editors' reviewThis Java applet plus minor HTML coding will display a set of images on your Web site, but the applet is too limited for most users. JDSC Viewer doesn't have a user interface, and you're expected to understand minor HTML coding. Setup is simple. You fill your Web directory with images to display. You add the JDSC Viewer Java applet to the directory. Then you construct an HTML page with the image filenames and titles as parameters. JDSC Viewer includes a sample HTML page as an example. The applet can't read the image height and width, forcing users to make all images less than a certain size and to set the applet to open at a slightly larger size. The demo is limited to a single screen and window color. Some users may have to install Java 1.4.2 to run this applet. In short, many easier-to-use and more-configurable image-display applets are available. Only novice Web designers will find a use for this applet.
JDSC Viewer is a Java applet that displays JPEG or GIF files. It allows you to display images on a web page. If you are an artist displaying your portfolio or you are just displaying some pictures you took or products have the convenience of having all the pictures displayed on one web page inside the applet. Images and corresponding title are added via applet parameters in the html file that calls the applet.
