Hi, I am using swing applets. browser is IE. This applet takes much time to get loaded. Is there anyway, so that I can cache the applet when it is loaded for the first time and this cached applet is loaded when I request for the applet next time?.If it is possible,can IE use this cached applet for a particular period of time.(for eg. one year).If yes, how can I set it? I am loading this applet from the html outputted from a servlet. So, is there any method in the response object or in any other object provided by the servlet, so that I can cache the applet for later use. My aim is to make the load time for applets less. Please help ..it is urgent.. Thanks Elizabeth.
