hi folks! im developing a web based chat server. im using applets and swing components. i have 2 questions that are irritating me. 1) for swing components to apply i have to install java plugin but that plugin will be installed only on my machine, how to make it available on to client machine and make applets visible as applet developed using swings will be downloaded on client machine?? 2)how to notify arrival of message. any way to blink the frame? hope u guys will remove this confusion. see ya
You have to have code on your applet that will ask the client to download the java plugin when they access your page. This has to be done only once. I am not sure I understand your second question.
