Frame has a method setCursor in 1.0.2 which you can use to set the cursor for given frame.
              Your applet should create a frame and set its cursor.

              Applet doesnt have any method to set the cursor  in 1.0.2 !!

the function setCursor() is belongs to Frame Object. In Java Applet, We have to get a
instance of frame object by using getParent() (One of your applet's parent is Frame in an applet), then call the setCursor() as following:
Object theFrame=null;

 while(!(theFrame instanceof Frame) && theFrame!=null) {

if (theFrame!=null) {
