Uploading my Applets

I have a java file named Client.java. Upon compiling, it produced two classes named Client.class and Client$1.class(I think this is a subclass when i create a new Runnable object). When I upload the Client$1, it shows an error "invalid class format". Is this class necessary in uploading my applets? Is it possible if i upload my classes inside a jar?

what do you mean with uploading? Sending the files to a webserver? Do you get the same error if you start this locally?
I suggest, pack the files in a jar. Jars are much easier to handle than single classes, if your applet gets bigger.

The class is necessary and it is probably the Runnable as you suspected. I agree putting it in a jar might make the process easier

Ok, thanks guys for the advice.
Now, I have new question. How can I call the class in the jar file in HTML.
When it is not jar. I used the ff. in the html
<applet code="Client.class" width=300 height=300>
if I upload the jar file, should it be:
<applet code="Client.jar" width=300 height=300>
where Client.jar is the name of the jar file

<applet code="Client.class" archive="whatever.jar" width=300 height=300>
If you have more than one JAR file, you can list them separated by commas.
