I think you meant to type "paint" here instead of pain. :)

So is your class file in the same directory as your htm file?

@Ezzaral..

thanks...it was a silly mistake..it worked...

well i want to ask one more question ...i m using jCreator for this...if i want to run it using command prompt i have to change the directory to bin folder of jdk everytime i run cmd...

how can i set path for this forever...

@lamthwee
ya they are in same folder..

but if they are in different folder can i use
<applet code="E:\rajat\My files\java progs\tryApplet.class"..>

means can i set path in applet tag...

@Ezzaral
well one more thing i wanna ask
why didnt it give a compile time error...

Add your Java /bin folder to the system path in your environment variables. This is described in more detail here if you need it: http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/jdk/install-windows.html#Environment

It did not complain because your method was still a valid one - just not the one that you wanted to override. You supplied an new method called pain() and the compiler was just fine with that.
