Hiya,
I have recently ported my app from tomcat 3.2.3 to tomcat 4.0.3. I have an applet on my site who's codebase is in a jar held in web-inf/lib. This was fine under 3.2.3 but now wont work under 4.0.3. I know that tomcat refuses to let a browser access web-inf and meta-inf directories but is that also true of applet jars?? Im getting a 403 error from the JRE..
any help very much appreciated. What is the standard location in your webapp you should use for applet codebases?

There's a difference between code executed ON the server (in the WEB-INF subtree) and code downloaded FROM the server (applet jars).
Put the applet jar in with the JSPs &co. As far as Tomcat's concerned, if it doesn't get executed on the server, it's data.
