Griffon + JDK 6 Update 10 = 100% Free Draggable Applets
By Geertjan-Oracle on Sep 16, 2008
Thanks to Griffon and JDK 6 Update 10, the applet that you see above is 100% free. I.e., I did nothing at all to create it and (once everything was set up correctly) I did nothing at all to be able to drag it. Via "griffon run-app" the applet was created (together with the Swing application) and because I opened it into FireFox 3 with JDK 6 Update 10 (b32, which is the recently released RC2 of JDK 6 Update 10), I was automatically able to drag it out of the browser. Griffon is therefore a perfect companion to JDK 6 Update 10. Seriously, if there's a nicer way to produce applets than Griffon (i.e., by not doing anything other than creating a Groovy application and then running "griffon create-app"), I'd like to know about it. Hurray for Griffon: the toolset that makes draggable applets a true breeze.
