Does anyone had similar problem:
I am hosting at
here's code snip from an applet
try {
System.out.println("URL: " + new URL(getDocumentBase(), "main.htm"));
getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(getDocumentBase(), "main.htm"));
catch(MalformedURLException urlEx) {
System.out here for debugging purposes. Now, with IE
I get output:
"URL: http://www.webappcabaret/main.htm"
while with Netscape I get:
"URL: http://www.webappcabaret/my_context_here/main.htm"
First, I was rather surprised to see this,
Second, even that URL which I get with Netscape is correct one, required
page does not get loaded with the second line, i.e. showDocument(),
Netscape just sits there and does nothing, no error msgs or whatever.
When I construct correct URL for IE, it works just fine.
I use Netscape Communicator 4.7
Any comments, ideas ?
