How to specify codebase for an applet running on a servlet page

Hi, here is the scenario I have.
I have a J2EE app. The url is: http://localhost/dnsmanager/report.screen. In the web/WEB-INF/web.xml, *.screen is mapped to TemplateServlet, and TemplateServlet is mapped to com.mycompany.j2ee.web.template.Template class which is resided in web/WEB-INF/classes folder. In the Template class, report.screen is forwarded to a physical JSP page web/docroot/report.jsp.
In the jsp page, I need display an applet ReportChart, the class of which is com.mycompany.j2ee.web.chart.ReportChart class which is resided in web/WEB-INF/classes folder. For the applet tag, I need specify the code base.
<applet code="com.mycompany.j2ee.web.chart.ReportChart.class" CODEBASE="???" width=460 height=300>
</applet>
What should I put for the codebase value? The applet specifies the codebase should be the diff dir between jsp page and applet class. I tried:
CODEBASE="" (no codebase)
CODEBASE="dnsmanager/web/WEB-INF/classes" (relative to web server root dir)
CODEBASE="../../../../../" (relative to Template file)
CODEBASE="../WEB-INF/classes" (relative to JSP file dir)
But none of them worked out -- always class not found error.
Urgent help is greatly appreciated.

I think you need to put your applet class outside web-inf, and then give the appropriate codebase path.
