Ok, so I have put together a login servlet which redirects back to itself with an incorrect login but that sends a multipart (using MIME) HTML document if the user is authenticated.
I know when many look at this the response may be "why didn't you use the O'Reily classes for this?". My reasons are a) I don't like the license restriction and b) I wanted to learn how to do it myself.
Anyways, the servlet responds and sends the multipart document to the Web Browser but the Web Browser doesn't know what to do with it (e.g. Firefox asks me if I want to download it), which suggests to me that I've obviously done something wrong because it should recognize it as a multipart document and attempt to load it. It is basically an HTML document with a JavaApplet inside of it. Can anyone see where exactly in code I've made a mistake (or mistakes)? Any help would be most apprreciated.
Btw, when/if it works, we all have a servlet that doesn't require the O'Reily classes.
