Hi
I have written an applet which needs jt400 tool box for java.
I have given the archive tag for jt400.jar in my html file.
The size of jt400.jar is around 2 Mb.So it is taking lot of time to
download.
I have tried to extract the jar file and putting in server.But it's
working only in some cases .
Please let me know if there is any other way to reduce the
downloading of files.
Thanx in advance
Satya

Hi all,
Iam facing a similar problem wrt to downloading of the applet. The applet makes use of several jar files.So the download time is getting longer. Any suggestions to improve the download time are welcome.

This article discusses a few "visual" tricks

Here is an article that demonstrates using a 'launcher' model that only downloads the main application when the user clicks the main applet.

This is a kind of dynamic class loading (except you still get the whole app at once). It would be interesting to see if you could do this one class at a time as you need them. Perhaps someone else has an example or some thoughts on this.
