The purpose of this site is to build documented encyclopedia containing Java applets (Wikipedia prohibits they inclusion). Another goal is to preserve and maintain a lot of good open source visualizations that otherwise may be lost. User editable Wiki and community derived applets is relatively unique combination on a web. Our articles are largely aligned towards the supporting visualizations.
All applets that we present here are code reviewed (by automated scanner and then by Java-competent engineer, we do not rely just on community for that) and most are adapted, updated and extended.Few (if any) applet repositories also review that they host.
There are many good applet sites developed by single individual, but we aim to present visualizations from different sources, also for similar topics.
We hope this makes us unique enough to deserve our niche on the web.
