Applet vs. Servlet in Java

Java is an object-oriented programming language that uses both compiler and interpreter. Mostly all software’s are made in Java programming language. Java code can be written on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. The syntax of C and C++ programming language is quite the same. Java produces browser to run programs that help in making a graphical user interface. Java programming language is in used and trend these days. To write Java code, a programmer needs software development kit (SDK) that includes a compiler, interpreter that is not required in C++.Applet and servlet both are java program. Applet and servlet are different from each other, applet and servlet in Java are that applet is a small java program that runs on client-run whereas Servlet is a small java program that runs on server-run.

The applet is small java program that run on client side and is embedded in an HTML code. There is a library in JAVA’S API that is called applet. There is a class in JAVA’S API that is known as Applet. If you create any subclass you need to make the subclass public. Init(), service(), destroy() are methods on Applet. Init() is a method that is use to initialize the program. Start() method is  used to start the program. Stop() method is used to stop the program.Servlets are the small java program that runs on the server side. The purpose of servlets is to collect the request from the client and create a web page. Java.servlet is and java.servlet.http is use to invoke servlets. Init() method is used to initialize the program into memory. Service() is a method that processes the HHTP and destroys () is the method that releases the resources.

Servlet

Servlets are the small java program that runs on the server side. The purpose of servlets is to collect the request from the client and create a web page. Java.servlet is and java.servlet.http is use to invoke servlets. Init() method is used to initialized the program into memory. Service() is a method that processes the HHTP and destroys () is the method that releases the resources.

Key Differences

  1. The applet is a small java program that runs on client-run whereas Servlet is a small java program that runs on server-run.
  2. Applet use user interface whereas Servlet does not use any user interface.
  3. Applet requires more network bandwidth whereas Servlet requires less network bandwidth.
  4. There is less security in applet whereas There is more security in servlet

Conclusion

In this article above we see the clear difference between applet and servlet with examples.
