Java Interview Questions
what is Applet life cycle?
An applet is born with init() method and starts functioning with start() method. To stop the applet, the stop() method is called and to terminate the applet completely from memory, the destroy() method is called. Once the applet is terminated, we should reload the HTML page again to get the applet start once again from init() method. 

This cyclic way of executing the methods is called applet life cycle.
