I am having problem running an applet present in a "A.JAR" file , this applet code calls few class present in "B.JAR" file.
I have put both the JAR files in the root dir of my http server and I am accessing the applet from a client machine.
I have mentioned the ARCHIVE tag in the *.html file and have put both the jar files within the quotes of ARCHIVE tag.
FYI: If i comment out the code which calls or instanciate objets of class present in B.jar file, ie if I use only A.jar it works fine.
Please let me know how to get out this hole. any help regarding this will be greatly appreciated.
