Terminating an applet.  Simple question

I have a quick question about applets.  Is it possible to terminate the executions of an applet once a browser has loaded it?  I'm not talking about
the stop() method because that just postpones the applet.  I want the applet to completely terminate.  I've tried using a

System.exit(0);

command but that doesn't seem to work.  Am I using this call wrong or doesn anyone know of anything else I could try?

Are you meaning free the system resources for the applet?

Try

setVisible(false);
dispose(); //Free the system resources
System.exit(0);

you can't 'terminate' applet (or browser window). but you can stop all your threads, disable / remove all the UI and stop handling user events.

swwong,
I mean to terminate the applet, meaning to stop it from running.  Freeing up system resources would also be part of this process.  Is it possible to terminate an applet once it starts running?

I don't wish to kill the browser window, I want to kill the applet which is running under the browser window when a certain button is clicked on the applet.

I do agree with heyhey. If you want to kill an applet, the most simple thing is to kill your browser window. Otherwise, you can just clear up those UIs and free up all the memory resources. And I think it's enough already. Actually, why you want to really "TERMINATE" an applet, and what kind of level for the termination do you want? Please let us know more.

We're creating a very high level applet which runs an on-line database of sorts.  When a user finishes using the applet, we'd like it to stop running completely, like the end of a program on a single PC.  Thus we wanted complete termination of the applet, as when a PC based program finishes execution.
