Hi,
Do applets have to be located on a server to be viewed from a browser rather than the appletviewer? I'm wanting to view my applet from my browser. The class file and html file are located in my local Java bin. Thanks for any help.
Regards,
Craig Snowbarger

Are you using windows? Just go to the directory your html file is in, open a browser window, and drag your html file into it... it should open the web page with your applet in it. You can also go under one of the open options under the file menu of your browser, and it should let you browse for files on your hard drive.
HTH,
-Nate

I discovered the problem. I'm using swing components that IE 5.5 won't support. Oh, well.

i am not familiar with the swing component compatibility with IE 5.x, but i do know that you have to add some html code to be able to view applets using Java 2 features in some older browsers...

here is the sun site for the plug-in... i don't know if this is what you need, but maybe it will get you in the right direction.
