It may take some time to load all pictures properly! Furthermore the applet still depends on careful usage without too fast interactions so please be patient!

The Applet


The Applet simulates the four algorithms Shortest Path Calculation, Multipath Routing, Backward Learning and Flooding which are elementary methods for the development of more complex routing methods. It's goal is to help students during their pre-exam preparations.

Source Code

The Applet is programmed in Java 1.0 by using Javasoft's JDK1.0.2. It is tested with Netscape Communicator under Linux and Windows95 as well as with Microsoft Internet Explorer under Windows95. Unfortunatly, Java is not as plattform independend as Javasoft proposes so we cannot guarantee that it works poperly with other operating systems and browsers.
