Hi all,

I face a porblem loading applets into html page. I have been working on this issue for 5 days now and couldn't figure out the solution. All the google links guide me to this amazing forum. However, I didn't solve the problem yet. I hope that I end up with this issue here.

When I load the applet in the browser with apache tomcat v5.5 running on local host, i get this error:

Java Plug-in 1.5.0_16

I'm using Eclipse and sun java version 6.

Using an absolute path for "codebase" doesn't work; it needs to be relative. The easiest would be to put the class files into the same directory as the HTML file. Then you don't need the codebase attribute at all.
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
