Amidst all the Java doom and gloom that’s gone round recently, it’s good to see an absolutely beautiful use of a simple applet. So go to the above URL, and look for the “ScoreCast” link.
Note that this is a very simple use of an advanced technology– lots of people could write this applet. And note that this applet is about information delivery, not about fancy graphics or complex animations. It’s a simple, clear, easy to understand GUI that tells me everything that’s going on in the baseball game, as the game is being played.
Seen any great applets lately?
