Hi, I've been working on a few applets on my machine. They compile fine, and I can load them in the Appletviewer. However, when I tried to open them in IE (or Firefox, for that matter), one of them would freeze up, while the others would run. After a while, none of them would load. I suspect a Java thread was still running (I checked the task manager, and had to terminate the process a few times - could also be working hard running Nortan virus scan and Eclipse at once, with 512MB RAM?).

Anyway, they worked fine in the Appletviewer, and when I tried uploading to my website, it was no problem opening them - they ran like a dream.

Any ideas? It's not a huge hassle - it seems I can trust what I see in the Appletviewer, and the plan is to upload them eventually, so it doesn't really matter so much if I can't view them locally. It's just annoying, and I'm wondering what could be wrong.

Here's what the console has to say:

Java Plug-in 1.5.0_06
Using JRE version 1.5.0_06 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = C:\Documents and Settings\My name


----------------------------------------------------
c: clear console window
f: finalize objects on finalization queue
g: garbage collect
h: display this help message
l: dump classloader list
m: print memory usage
o: trigger logging
p: reload proxy configuration
q: hide console
r: reload policy configuration
s: dump system and deployment properties
t: dump thread list
v: dump thread stack
x: clear classloader cache
0-5: set trace level to <n>
