Hi all,
I am trying to intall some applet files on the local m/c. I have the classes in a package. I maka jar file of the classes and place it under c:\winnt\java\classes. I set the classpath on the Environment tab to the same. But when i download the applet from the Server, The java console complains that the URLClassloader is not able to find the required classes for running the applet. However if i use the classes without any package and place them in a jar, it works.
Iam using IE 5.0 on Winnt 4.0. Please let me know what should i do to solve this problem. Also let me know How can i install applets on the client m/c.

Please check whether you have the same package structure when you create a jar file.
This can be found out by executing "jar -tf jarFileName.jar".
If the package structure is correct, then try using the archive tag in the html file.
I'm not sure as to what ur other question was ("installing applets on the clients m/c"), well for one, the applet class files are not installed and two they are downloaded automatically to the clients m/c. So all you have to do is to have a html file with has an applet tag and have the necessary files on the server.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
