Does anybody know how I can integrate a Java Applet into Joomla?

Java Applet can be added into any Joomla module by just editing the HTML of the module.

Like create a custom HTML module and place it on any appropriate location.

Then Edit the HTML of the module to add the Applet code into it.

Can you elaborate a little bit more on that? I created a custom module, now how do I place it where I want and how do I edit it? What I want to do is have a java applet that pops up when a certain condition is met. Is that possible?

After doing some more research, I realized a java applet isn't my best bet. What I want to do is make like a simple registration form. I want the form to take in certain field like name, email, and phone number. Then I want it to be automatically emailed to me. This will be like a contact us form. How can I do this in my joomla site?

Lots of extensions already available and why you are trying to re-invent the wheel then.

Which extensions do you recommend for my problem? The thing is that I want my form to appear when a condition is met, and most extensions that I've found just get their own page.

Get the extension and the page and edit its code to add your condition.
