Work continues in the process to convert all of my Java applets to servlets. The latest effort, the "This Day In History (TDIH) Calendar" applet illustrated in the following graphic.
You may recall, the TDIH applet originally ran on the WiredPages Style & Events page.
Since most modern desktop and tablet i.e., iPad/Android browsers no longer support Java Applets, I have been in the process of converting the applets to servlets.
The graphic on the left, illustrates the new TDIH Calendar as a Java Servlet. The html code snippet on the right demonstrates in real time, access links to the history.com site for April historical events that happened on the specified day.
Though most of the work on the new servlet has been completed, I am not sure when I will install the new tool.
Related Effort: The old Blogger Calendar applets will also be rewritten using a lot of the underlying code from this conversion effort.
