Hi all, I have a JSP form that has to load an applet using java-plugin. I have also added the code snippet below for reference. Unfortunately I keep getting class not found exception. The classes are in a jar file. Is there a different syntax for such cases. Thanks. <jsp:plugin type="applet" code="packagename.appletclassname.class" codebase="/pathOfArchive/" archive="jarname.jar" width="200" height="100"> </jsp:plugin>

While this msg is more suitable for the Applet forum, part of the answer that you may be interested is in the archive tag explanation found on the Sun Tutorials page. In the link above please see the explanation for the topic Combining an Applet's Files into a Single File almost at the end. HTH. regds. - satya
The reason for posting in this forum is because the above code works perfectly fine if i use the following equivalent: <OBJECT classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" WIDTH = "300" HEIGHT = "100" > <PARAM NAME="code" VALUE="packagename.appletclassname.class"> <PARAM NAME="codebase" VALUE="/path/"> <PARAM NAME="archive" VALUE="jarname.jar"> <PARAM NAME="type" VALUE="application/x-java-applet;version=1.3"> but does not work in a JSP where <jsp:plugin> tag is provided to enable a JSP to load the java plugin. The equivalent of the above without the plugin also works perfectly fine when given as below: <APPLET WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=100 CODE="packagename.appletclassname.class" CODEBASE="/path/" ARCHIVE="jarname.jar"> </APPLET> My requirement is to run the plugin applet from the jsp and hence i use <jsp:plugin> tag, but does not seem to find the class files from the jar. Thanks for the reply, though.

It works when .... <OBJECT classid="clsid: ......<BR> .....-applet;version=1.3"> but does not work in a JSP where <jsp : plugin> tag is provided to enable a JSP to load the java plugin
Sure enough it doesn't work.<BR> If you read the fine print, the default value (in the use a plugin tag) for the jreversion is 1.1 In your OBJECT code which works, you seem to have specified version 1.3. You need to specify this in you jsp plugin tag. HTH. regds. - satya
