We are using Sun One Application Server
We are displaying .swf (Flash) through a JSP file.
The flash work Fine on HTTPS but does not work on HTTP.

Looking at the source (View source option in IE) we found that on HTTP the <object> tag does not have any classid and code base. It seems to be stripped off when using HTTP. We are providing it in the JSP in the Object tag.

Following is the code in JSP to display the flash. Please provide help why it does not work on HTTP but works on HTTPS.

<object classid="clsid 27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="718" height="287" id="final">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="/static/i/media/flash/final.swf?xmlFile=/static/i/media/flash/homepage_uk_en.xml" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="/static/i/media/flash/final.swf?xmlFile=/static/i/media/flash/homepage_uk_en.xml" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="718" height="287" name="final" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />
Thanx in Advance

"Vicky N",

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
