Accessing Jar file

I have a jsp page(login.jsp) in the WEB-INF folder(test/WEB-INF) on the web server.
'login.jsp' has an applet in it(systemApplet). The jar file containing the class files for the applet is in the 'test' directory, 'test' is the root-context of my application.

'login.jsp' accesses some of the styles sheets from a different server(http server), but when I move the jar file to the http server and try to access the jar file, I am not able to do access.
The applet is still looking for the jar file in the 'test' directory.
Is there a way I can access the jar file placed on the http server?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

That's what the CODEBASE (and ARCHIVE) attributes of the APPLET tag are for.

Thanks a lot Ulf. It worked using the CODEBASE tag.

I agree. Here's the link:
