About Duke

The character in the upper left corner is the Java mascot, "Duke" (open sourced by Sun Microsystems).

This Java applet recalls the earliest (and probably first) example of a Java applet in a web browser with the following modifications:
  • the animation cycles only once when it is loaded or if you tickle his nose (with the ability to pause)
  • you can doodle on him (but cleared with the animation)
  • if you right click (or command-click) you'll get a special message (arguable security issue?)

The code is derived from a Java 1.1 animation example and compiled using
Java 6 as follows (so that it can still work on most JVMs):

javac -target 1.1 -source 1.2
