Hi, everybody
I need jdbc in my applet and I fail to load the driver in applet. I search the web for answers and someone said I can
have a archive parameter which point to the driver package.
so if the package is quite big(about 2M), the client will download the package everytime he(she) start the applet,does
anybody have good ideas? thanks.

I did just that a couple of weeks ago. I was using the oracle driver... and
I observed that IE does not download them every time. It downloads them only once and keep them in cache.
I don't think there is any way to explicitly make the browser cache archives selectively. (I would not want it to cache my applet's jar).
If you find a way please do post it here
I agree. Here's the link:
