I created a Java applet
which uses the Apache Commons jar file. On Windows, I can only launch applet by opening a Command Prompt window, going into the directory of the jar files, and running a bat file I wrote.
I have a subdirectory called OracleReports which contains the files: commons-net-1.2.2.jar, OracleReports.jar, and OracleReports.bat.
This is the contents of OracleReports.bat:
C:\WINNT\system32\java.exe -classpath .;commons-net-1.2.2.jar;OracleReports.jar OracleReports
My management would like our operators to monitor the Oracle Reports; however, the operators are very computer illiterate. I want to be able to have an icon on the Windows Desktop, so the operators can double-click it to launch this OracleReports Java applet. Someone also told me that an applet can be on a web server which the operators just go to a URL. With multiple JAR files, I do not know the syntax of the HTML code.
I would appreciate it someone can share their expertise on how to launch a Java applet by double clicking an icon on the Windows Desktop considering there are two JAR files.
