I dont know whether this is the right thread to put this question up or not. If not, Admin - please move this query to the right thread.

Im trying to load an applet using Object tag in a jsp. Applet is located in a jar and the required resources for that applet are located in a single jar. The resources jar contains 10 jars approx. required to load the applet. I was able to load the applet if i give all the jars. but was unsuccessful if i make all the resources in to single jar. Here is the code sample that is working

This code is not working

help me.

You can't access resources which are inside a jar which itself is inside a jar. Not unless you use a specialized classloader which understands that setup -- and using classloaders other than the system classloader would require you to sign your applet.

Since you already have the solution -- don't put your jars inside a jar -- there isn't much more to be said.
