I have an appletAA which does some verification.
If verified to true, then it can either
(1) start another .html file in the same getDocumentBase() and which <APPLET ... CODE=AppletBB... > tag will take me to another applet ; OR
(2) start AppletBB.class from within the appletAA.
I have the impression one cannot start an applet with another applet ???
What do I need to read up ???
I think I had better clarify my question ( I confuse myself, but that's because JAVA is so complex ... ): :roll:
I understand codeBase = FQDN
If one applet is in Apache's document root, then can I invoke another applet in a sub-directory of the document root using getApplet() ?
Only appletAA is running , appletBB is not running. BB is waiting to be called by AA.
Is there a way around this ???
Seems the only way I can do this is to introduce a new class file AppletList which stores references to other applets in a hash table. I was hpoing that it would be just another sub-routine call.
Why can't I just import appletBB and take it from there ???
Well, the question is simply this : how to start appletBB from within appletAA ???
Inside the html, I can have

but this means both will be displayed and I don't want that.
I want one applet to be displayed and when a condition verifies to true, it will start up another applet.
In other languages and olden days, we call them sub-routines. All languages have sub-routines except JAVA.
On the other hand, nothing in SUN's white-paper suggests that one applet cannot invoke another applet in the same getDocumentBase(), which adds to my frustration with JAVA
