We are running an applet in IE 5.5 and above. From our home page we open a new browser window which contains the <OBJECT> tag to load the applet. When we close the applet window the applet does a System.exit(0) which causes both browser windows to close. If I leave out the System.exit(0) the applet window closes and home page browser does not close but the applet seems to still be running as the amount of memory does not go down and the Java console remains up. If I try to start the applet again from the home page browser the applet starts to come up but hangs. How can I get the applet to gracefully go away to free up the memory but not close the home page browser window?
