Hi All,

I am trying to call Applet from servlet,
I had my "applet.class" which is created in one folder, say d:\project\classes
& my root folder to run web-server is different say d:\root\web_server

My proble is that every time when I compile my Project applet class file created at d:\project\classes
I have to manually put applet.class at d:\root\web_server to run that applet,

Please suggest me hoe define CODEBASE for this scenario.

Thanks & Regards

Why dont you put your compiled file directly to d:\root\web_server at compile time with javac options

Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.

Hello "Girish S"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, can you describe a bit more of your architecture? A servlet can't call an applet in the general case (a servlet runs on the server, while an applet runs on the client). So unless this is a special case (like everything running on your local machine), it may be more complicated than setting the codebase attribute.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
