Hi, I am facing another prob, I hope anyone is able to help me.
I could connect to jdbc driver in application but when i converted the code to applet, I had the following error:
java.lang.classnotfoundexception racle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.
I think the reason for this is that the classpath such as c:\[oracle_home]\jdbc\lib\;c:\[oracle_home]\jdbc\lib\;
is known to the application but it is not known to the applet.
So, i think , i need to include it the html file, but how do i do it?
I did some research , and i found out that the codebase attribute need to point to a directory containing the java classes from the Thin JDBC distribution *and the compiled jdbcapplet.class.
how do i do it? Could anyone help me? I have already spent one week to figure it out and could not?

You are on the right track. The following Applet Code should help you with what you are trying to do. Take note of the PARAM NAME="archive"

Hope that helps. Ask any questions!!
