what Classpath does the appletviewer use? i can compile the applet without a problem but I get NoClassDef (for one of the packages I'm importing) error when I run it in the appletviewer.
Funny part is if I put a main method inside and run it with java myClass, it is able to find and import those packages just not with appletviewer. Any suggestions?

Chances are it is a problem with your tag in your HTML file.
If you have multiple JAR or Class files that are needed by your main class, you should include them in the Archive Parameter of your TAG in your HTML file.
