Hi, we have a serious of applets that were loading very slowly because all jar files were being loaded with the first html page. To solve that, we created our own class loader and now load jars only as the applets that need them are requested. But, we notice that we're getting a lot of 404 errors on the classes. It seems the browser is looking in the DocumentRoot of Apache before calling the custom class loader. Does anyone know how this really works and if there is a way to avoid all of the 404s? Thanks for any help you can give me.
