Sorry if these questions have already been answered 1000s of times, but if you cold perhaps point me in the right direction
I have been asked to investigate some of the implcations of using Applets with our product. I was wondering:
  • How you can show the time taken to download an applet? We are using the Java Plug In (see my later question), which does allow specifying VM parameters. The -verbose parameter outputs a line for each class loaded, but I'm not sure if these lines contain a timestamp?
  • How reliable is the caching of applets with the new Java Plug In? In other words, is the caching guaranteed until the last browser window is closed, or even longer?
  • Can you specifiy multiple JARs in the archive attribute? If so, how?

  • I'll be back with more newbie questions later

    OK. Found a good definition of the applet's HTML definition, which specifies that the ARCHIVE attribute allows multiple comma separated JAR files. Anyone got any good answers for the other questions :roll: :roll:
    I guess everyone has an angle. Fine, what do you want? Just know that you cannot have this tiny ad:
