It's an image map. You can click on various parts of the image and get messages/sounds played

can you tell me what are those things in the param tag.
could be anything, the applet can access them using its getParameter() method. WHat it does with them is up to the applet
My guess is they define area on the applet and the action associated with it.


Have a look at the source to see what they do with the values got from calling getParameter()

>>can you tell me what are those things in the param tag.

They define regions on the image map and also sound files to play when the mouse is moved over various hotspots
Can you tell me why you accepted that answer please zolf ?

the answer object provided was to very clear also he mentioned how i can find the parameters in the applet class by looking for getParameter() and since i am still new to java,it helped me to understand those things in a much better way.
what you were telling me was straight forward which i also knew,but he went into details.
if you would have given me that answer i would have given you the points.

i am sorry to disappoint you.

>>the answer object provided was to very clear

>>could be anything

Didn't seem to be to me
