Black-Scholes Java Applet

Below is an example of a simple Java Applet calculating a call or put using the Black-Scholes stock option formula. Compared with Java Script, Java is much faster and more powerful. For analytical models Java Script will do fine, however for numerical models and/or portfolio systems JAVA is a better choice.

To use the Applet below you have to use a Browser that support JAVA 2. You also need to set JAVA to ON.

Java is an excellent tool to make online option calculators

Java is fast (but slower than C/C++)

Java is cross platform independent. It also works on a Mac at least if you use Explorer 5.0.

Java is cool !
