This might be a typical question....<br>
I want to connect to an database using applet, the code is ready using an OracleType 4 Driver.<br>The problem that I am facing is that the <b>.jar</b> file that we are supposed to send to the client thru the ARCHIVE attribute needs to contain some certificate a manifest file etc....<p>
I want to know the steps by which I can create that jar file & successfully run the applet..I have downloaded a document that specifies <i>how to sign using the <b>javakey</b></i> but the problem is that <i>javakey</i> doesnt seem to run on my machine..and so was advised to use <i>keytool</i> instead of javakey.. to generate the certificates ...<p>
I am using windows NT 4.0 & jdk1.3.Java plugin is installed on my machine.
<br>
<i>plz help URGENTLY</i>
thanx

It's generally not a good idea for an applet to attempt to run JDBC. Aside from the fact that the applet needs to be signed, many JDBC drivers rely on TCP/IP ports that are blocked by firewalls.
A 2=tier or 3-tier solution may seem more complicated, but it works better for most cases.
