Offhand, it has no significance. Where did you see it - what was the context in which you thought it had significance?

Well, in Solaris and Linux, it has none whatsoever. It doesn't exist.

DLL's are Windows inventions and the only time you'll see them on a non-Windows computer is where they're being kludged into the OS in places like the ndiswrapper or the Mono .Net system.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

In one of our application we have 'http' links and 'https' link. All operation in http are working fine but some operations in https are hanging.

we enabled the user trace and the assertion from a thorough review of every frame of this trace leads to a conculsion that the problem with downloading the applet appears to exist somewhere in the Java VM code, potentially in Sun's "net.dll" binary, as it appears that right after we start the Java VM code to load the applet we load up "net.dll", we spawn up a user dispatch worker thread, and then, nothing happens. It appears that when the failure condition occurs, Internet Explorer is allowing the JVM code to execute and nothing else is happening.

so i just want to know the significance of net.dll file.

Presumably it's an implementation detail of the JVM, perhaps the library that implements the native methods in the package.

I agree. Here's the link:
