Hi Saltacid,

Here is the code, which reads the host name and displays it in the applet. Either you can run this applet or call this applet in browser to display the host name of your machine.

// Starts Code

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.net.*;
public class HostName extends JApplet {
  boolean isStandalone = false;
  JLabel lblName = new JLabel();
  JLabel lblHost = new JLabel();

  //Construct the applet
  public HostName() {
  }

  //Initialize the applet
  public void init() {
    try  {
      jbInit();
    }
    catch(Exception e)  {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }
  }

  //Component initialization
  private void jbInit() throws Exception {
    lblName.setFont(new java.awt.Font("Dialog", 0, 20));
    lblName.setBounds(new Rectangle(132, 59, 400, 48));
    this.setSize(new Dimension(559, 303));
    this.getContentPane().setLayout(null);
    lblHost.setFont(new java.awt.Font("Dialog", 0, 20));
    lblHost.setText("Host Name:");
    lblHost.setBounds(new Rectangle(24, 59, 113, 48));
    this.getContentPane().add(lblName, null);
    this.getContentPane().add(lblHost, null);
    String sAdd="";
    String Name="";
    try{
    sAdd=InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName();
    Name=InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostAddress();
    }catch(Exception oExp){}
    lblName.setText(sAdd);
      System.out.println("Local Machine Host Name="+sAdd);
      System.out.println("Local Machine IP Address="+Name);
  }

  //Get Applet information
  public String getAppletInfo() {
    return "Applet Information";
  }

  //Get parameter info
  public String[][] getParameterInfo() {
    return null;
  }

  //Main method
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    HostName applet = new HostName();
    applet.isStandalone = true;
    JFrame frame = new JFrame();
    frame.setTitle("Applet Frame");
    frame.getContentPane().add(applet, BorderLayout.CENTER);
    applet.init();
    applet.start();
    frame.setSize(400,320);
    Dimension d = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
    frame.setLocation((d.width - frame.getSize().width) / 2, (d.height - frame.getSize().height) / 2);
    frame.setVisible(true);

  }
  // static initializer for setting look & feel
  static {
    try {
      UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName());
      //UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getCrossPlatformLookAndFeelClassName());
    }
    catch (Exception e) {}
  }

}
   
// Ends Code

Good Luck,
Jadhv
