Hi, I have 2 questions concerning the use of applets in HTML. Please help. Question 1: Where does the archive files specified in the "ARCHIVE" attribute of the "OBJECT" or "APPLET" tags being downloaded to. I have searched the "Temporary Internet Files" folder in Windows 98 but only managed to find the applet class. Question 2: How can I run an applet in an archive instead of a standalone class? Can I specify an JAR file in the "CODEBASE" attribute to do this? Thanks.
Hi Meng, The Archive gets loaded into memory. The files are not placed onto any disk location (unless swapping is necessary) because it would be a breach of JVM security (No file reading/writing). ARCHIVE tag is where you specify jar file names not the CODEBASE. The CODEBASE only specifies a directory in which your CODE is based. The CODEBASE could be a path inside the jar file. Regards, Manfred.
