    Easy Q : Java 2D Game

    I'm making a 2D tank wars game in Java for my learning experience and I'm confused about this : Is it possible to make a Java 2D standalone game or does it have to be an Applet ? I remember making applets a few years back, but I always thought I could make a Java game that runs on it's own without the need of a webpage/browser , etc..

    Regards,
    nox

    Java does not have to be an applet in order to run, nor is it confined to a web browser. There are thousands of Java applications out in use in the world.

    and so was PeejAvery (or at least his comment could apply just as well to game development).
