I am using Win98 with JDK1.2 and it does work.
If I simply specify class name in JView then I will see Applet with width and height equal to zero. I have to resize the applet to see the drawn strings.
But if you specify html file that has height and width define for this applet, then you will see correct view of applet.
jview /a index.html
Try avoid using JView, it's microsoft version of JVM. Use appletviewer from Sun that comes with JDK.
