Hi all,

I face a porblem loading applets into html page. I have been working on this issue for 5 days now and couldn't figure out the solution. All the google links guide me to this amazing forum. However, I didn't solve the problem yet. I hope that I end up with this issue here.

When I load the applet in the browser with apache tomcat v5.5 running on local host, i get this error:

Java Plug-in 1.5.0_16
Using JRE version 1.5.0_16 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = /home/mouza

c: clear console window
f: finalize objects on finalization queue
g: garbage collect
h: display this help message
l: dump classloader list
m: print memory usage
o: trigger logging
p: reload proxy configuration
q: hide console
r: reload policy configuration
s: dump system and deployment properties
t: dump thread list
v: dump thread stack
x: clear classloader cache

I'm using Eclipse and sun java version 6.

The index file is as follow:

Using an absolute path for "codebase" doesn't work; it needs to be relative. The easiest would be to put the class files into the same directory as the HTML file. Then you don't need the codebase attribute at all.
I agree. Here's the link:
