    can java programs only be ran in an applet via the browser and the console.

    or are there other methods such as forms and other stuff ?

    Yes.

    They can run as stand alone applications, under Java Web Start, as
    Servlets, natively compiled, burned into ROM and many other ways. Java
    is one of the most flexible languages in that regard.

  4. If you mean an integrated IDE from which you can run your apps without
    going to console, you can find some good ones from www.netBeans.com
    www.eclipse.org www.JCreator.com
    Once your app is ready to be delivered you should make a JAR file out of
    it and it will run like other apps.

    Thank you guys for your answers.

    the reason that i ask this is that i wish to find a language that i can use
    for desktop applications and web both client and serverside. so far java
    does seem to be the most extensible language as it can a work in any
    computer regardless of the os ( im not a fan of software that will only work
    for microsoft os and browsers) plus java has javascript and java server
    pages as far as client and server side programming goes. Am i wrong in this
    assumption.

    Only the statement 'java has javascript'..

    Javascript can be used in HTML, ASP ..or JSP,
    and is in no way 'possessed' by Java.
