this is the source code http://www.bennychow.com/download/pacman_eclipse_project.zip
works as an applet
but I want to create tests (its due tomorrow :/) for this app and in order to do that I need to run it as an application
so I created a main method:

public static void main(String[] args) {
			PacMan pacMan = new PacMan();
			pacMan.init();
			pacMan.start();
			JFrame window = new JFrame("Sample Applet and Application");
	        window.setContentPane(pacMan);
	        window.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
	        window.pack();              // Arrange the components.
	        //System.out.println(theApplet.getSize());
	        window.setVisible(true);    // Make the window visible.
		}

but with this main method i get exceptions that i didnt get when i was running it as an applet any ideas what I need to do in order to solve this?

thanks to all helpers.

to accomplish your task instead of extending your class to Applet go for Frame(in PackMan.java)....
this will do .....
