Servlet with url problems

Hi, kind of a newbie question - but causing me headaches

Given the following file structure:

My servlet needs access to the applet: PhWebLogon.class

Have the following in a web definition file:
<h1>Logon Page </h1>
<applet code="PhWebLogon.class" width="@screenwidth" height="@screenheight" >
No Logon Applet? </applet>

But can't seem to get the url code="PhWebLogon.class" right.
(Sevlet can't find applet)

Any help is much appreciated

Servlets can use classes that are in the classes directory (and lib etc.), not from just anywhere in the web hierarchy. Applets of course can't use classes inside of WEB-INF, so I think you need to duplicate the class files.

Thanks Ulf, seems like that worked.

I agree. Here's the link:
