It would be nice if you could me get some information regarding applications/products where Java applets are used so that I can apply the same concept in the Domino world.
You can find a ton of articles by simply searching the IBM Web site, which yields a results page with plenty of resources. You can also read an interview with Brian Levine, one of the developers responsible for the Java applets in R5.
I hope this gets you started. Let me know if you still have some free time to learn about Java in Domino. I'm sure I can find some more!
