Multiple JPanel in JApplet

This should be a simple task, but I don't do that much with Java.

5 different JPanel classes which handle their own actions have been created.  For this conversation we will call them MyPanel1 ... MyPanel 5.  The first of these is a button/keypad menu.  All of this must run within a JApplet.  When the user selects one of the buttons a new class instance is created of the appropriate class and becomes the content for the JApplet.  When the user wishes to exit that JPanel they chose an exit option and it finalizes.  The JApplet should redisplay the original menu JPanel class (MyPanel1 for this discussion).

Need to see a code snippet for the switching back and forth.

In my opinion, in this case it is the most appropriate to use CardLayout class, to realize that kind of panel switching.

You should have one main panel with 5 panels added to it using CardLayout. Initialy MyPanel1 instance will be visible. When user choose some button from MyPanel1, main panel will switch its content to appropriate panel. When user wants to return to MyPanel1, clicking the appropriate "exit" button will make MyPanel1 visible again.
