I have a java applet which uses a couple of other resources like sound files and other java source files. this java applet is packaged into a jar file along with the other java sources it uses. This jar file is placed in a directory which contains some sound (.au) files. this directory is deployed on tomcat . I normally work with this applet structure using javascript in web browser but because it plays a lot of sound, the IE crashes. So i decided to run this applet with JWS. I packaged the directory contents i.e the .au files and the java sources jar files into a jar file. and placed the jnlp file parallel to it. but my applet is not running.....i am pasting my jnlp....
