Hello,

I know that the contents inside web-inf are not visible to the client. Even tough, I have a web app that launches an applet app. I would like to know if there is any way to put the applet�s jar inside WEB-INF/lib and the web app be still able to find the applet�s classes.

I have read something about using the ServletContext�s getResource() method, but I don�t know how it would work since when the user calls my jsp with the applet tags embbed, the applet main class will be called.

Thanks

I think you answered your question. Your web application does not "launch" an applet, it points the browser to a web page which has an applet embedded in it. Obviously the web page and applet must be somewhere that is visible to the client.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
