Hi,

Do I need a signed applet if I want to use OpenGl in an applet?
o java or not to java

Well, i don't know for sure. It *should* work that way, but i never tried it. For deploying applications that use LWJGL (http://www.lwjgl.org) (as jPCT does for OpenGL support), i suggest to use Java Webstart instead.
However, you may give the signed applet approach a try, but even if it works, it will never render into the applet itself, because LWJGL can't redirect its output into an AWT/Swing component. That the design of LWJGL..nothing you can do about that, i'm afraid.
