I've been going through the applet programs at the end of each chapter but is it really that important. They seem to be kind of off target, without a specific purpose. And another thing the is all of them use the applet tag which is actualy depreciated.
The same question applies to Ant build scripts.
If anybody can shed some light on this matter it would be very much appreciated. My and I believe most UNISA students time is limited. And if these things aren't that important I'd rather not waste any more time on them.
