I was hoping I could run scottrades live ticker aplet on here. No luck so far.

Anyone know a way to run java aplet?

Thanks

Investigated this myself -- despite android have 'some java' built in (i.e. dalvik VM) it does't have a VM capable of running a java applet.

One of the big missing things in Dalvik is the class libraries that are part of a normal JVM/JRE/JDK. In particular, it doesn't have awt, and/or swing (class libs used for UI type stuff).

So applets -- nope. Sometime? Maybe ... I think the OpenJDK guys have all the needed class libs making it JDK compatible but not having any proprietary encumberances. Maybe using this, there is a snowball's chance in hell that some enterprising organization or person, could attempt to cobble in some sort of support for more vanilla java stuff; maybe even including applets.

anybody have any other info on this?

There is Java SE embedded for ARM which should provide JavaSE with all standard libs such as awt and swing.
Don't know if this runs on the Galaxy Tab though, did not try for myself.
