Missing Applet

TO Expert:
I am trying to get an applet to work. I ran the applet off line in my browser and it worked okay. Then when I uploaded to my web site it stopped working. I noticed earlier that the applet would not work if I changed directories. In other words, when I droped it in to a folder it stopped working (I mention this because I think this is related to why it will not work now). The source code contains the line:
Public class yig3 extends java.applet.Applet implements Runnable
I am thinking that the java.applet.Applet is causing the problem, but I may be wrong.
I orginally had this HTML Code:
<applet codebase="." code="yig3.class" height=250 width=250>
I tried changing it to this:
<applet code=yig3.class codebase=java/yig3/ width=255 height=275>
Is it my html or my source code that is giving me problems? Any assistants will be appreciated.

Hi Tim -
There's no way to tell from above if your Applet code has a problem, but let's assume that it doesn't.
One way to test for codebase issues: put the .class at the top of the web servers document base, and remove the codebase tag altogether. If that works, you'll know the problem lies in the way you're using codebase.

Ok I'll try that as soon as I figure out what a web servers document base is.

Hi
if applet code lies in the same directory as html page , you don't need codebase variable at all in your tag. Otherwise you use relative path to your class from the directory of html.
Go to java.sun.com and enter CODEBASE in search - I bet you'll find there the info.
Pavel.
