A very very simple question --- when a client user download an applet to view it, it must download the bytecode through internet, so is the bytecode saved on local PC ? if so, what directory ? If I view an applet from a browser opened on a Unix workstation, then where is the bytecode saved ?
thanks,
steve

It depends on the browser. The browser maintains disk and memory caches for downloaded items. Often the sizes of the caches can be tuned, but the tuning and location of these caches is very much dependent on the way the browser was implemented.
Java classloaders are not required to actually load from disk. It's perfectly legal to have classloaders build up classes from non-disk sources.
