Sorry in advance if my problem is not of 'Advanced' level
I have a 'signed' applet at my webserver. The applet code is running outside the security sandbox, so when user access my page, java Security Warning box opens at user's screen and he/she click on 'Run' button to execute the applet. It working well if every thing goes as i described.

Now, Is there any to run a java class file(containing code, i-e Accessing file system etc) at user side, WHEN HE ACCESSES MY WEBPAGE. I mean can my java file silently(or with user permissions) download and run at user's PC ??
Best Regards,

That sounds like Java Web Start to me. If you have a 1.5 or 1.6 Java installed you should find information in the ../docs/tooldocs/index.html page. Otherwise a Google search will get you started.
