The applets accessible through this web site have been written to run correctly with version 2.0 of the JAVATM language.  Support of backward compatibility with Java 1.1 has been discontinued.

In order to view the applets, your browser should have a recent JAVA 2 plug-in installed.  All the new applet versions are designed to work best with release 1.5 or higher of the JDK, but they are backward compatible with other releases of Java 2 (although occasionally minor differences in the appearance of some fonts may be noticed).

The software has been designed to work with Windows XP or higher.  Recommended browsers are Firefox and Internet Explorer.  The applets should work on any operating system with a browser that correctly implements the JAVA 2 plug-in, but other systems and browsers have not been tested systematically.  One should be able to execute the applets satisfactorily with Firefox under LINUX operating system, if the browser is set up correctly.  The applets posted on this site have not been calibrated to work properly on Macintosh Apple computers.  They will run, but with some problems in the graphical interface in several applets. 

However, all the applets which have been modified for the companion CD-ROM included with the book "Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics" 6th Edition, by Ulaby, Michielssen and Ravaioli (published by Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2010) have all been tested to work properly under both Microsoft Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

Most of the minor problems encountered in older web browsers have been resolved by more recent releases incorporating the 1.5 JDK version of the JAVA plug-in.  Depending on the browser installed, the applets may still work on computers using Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000 but these operating systems are not supported any longer.
