Recently I had wrote a applet as a menu in Browser. I put all classes into jar and it worked well but if I put a data file ( for example, a xml file or a image file ), then I got an error that told me the files not be found.
I used java-plugin and the tag "object".
I tried to use jar because it's convenient to jar all dependent libraries.

Images should not be a problem - you use loadImage and getDocumentBase(). I don't know about files in general (although if a image file can be read it seems like other files could be read as well). However, you might be better off using a properties file instead of an XML file. They were supported in earlier releases and don't need additional class libraries to be parsed.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
