Hi all,
We are working on a website that has a huge interconnection of Applets as GUI. As a result,it is taking a long time for the applets to download. Its an existing system and we need to fine tune it so the download is reduced. The Invoking HTML has a parameter called "CABBASE" and thro this the Applets classes are received. Does any one have idea about this CABBBASE and how it works?
Also can any one suggest me as to how to go about installing the applet classes onto the client m/c the first time , so that the user will see not have to wait every time for the applets to download. Since all the applets classes are in jar or cab files, how can i load into the browser JVM if the classes are on the client m/c itself.
Please give me some leads for the same. If my explanation is not clear please let me know so that i can provide a more clearer picture of my problem.
