Java is slow when loading applets on websites. Is there a way of downloading all the applets to be used on all the screens for a website so that when one moves to a different page, loading is fast.

Moving this to the Applet's forum, as this is not a topic on the Certification Exam. Please continue the discussion there.

You could fake it by placing all the applets on one page and passing them special arguments to tell them not to run just yet.
But that page would download even slower, since it would have to pull everything down at once. At lot of people would get tired of waiting and simply cancel it.

You can put all the applets in the same JAR file. If they're all small, the overhead shouldn't be too bad, and certainly will be better than loading each one separately.
