If you have never made an applet, it will be difficult.

What do you mean by "virtual pet"? If you mean an interactive video game, you would have to learn quite a bit.

It's certainly possible yes, but:

1) There may be a language more suited to this kind of thing. Ruby on Rails or Python would be probably be a much better idea, particularly if you're just learning.

2) It is more complex than it sounds.
