Hello Javaranchers
I have made a simple applet which actually works fine on my ie6. But when I deploy all source to my Tomcat 4.1 I cannot get it to work.
I have places my applet source in a package called dk.chatrmi. My class file is called ChatImpl.class. I have placed the applet in the classes dir of my Tomcat. The following is my html file, which I have placed in the root of my Tomcat "examples". This is the content of the file:
<applet code="dk.chatrmi.ChatImpl.class" codebase="http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet" width=800 height=400></applet>
I have added the full path to the codebase attr. but still I cannot get it to work.
I have sdk 1.4 installed on my computer.
I get the following error in my Java console:
load: class dk.chatrmi.ChatImpl.class not found.
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: dk.chatrmi.ChatImpl.class

hi ralph,
try moving the applet code base out the servlet directory.
say put the applet's html and the package in examples directory instead.
i guess, the applet loader looks for classes in the applet's code base rather than the 'webserver classpath' settings u know.. and this 'servlet/' directory which is a 'virtual' directory so to say might be causing problems...
request to servlet/ only works for "servlets" ...well i wont elaborate on this much in the applet forum..
try moving the applet codebase out of the servlet directory and see if it works for u...
