Including a jar file in an Applet

I have created an applet and made its jar file in Netbeans. i am using a jar file in an applet.
I am calling the applet.jar in a jsp page. The applet works fine but the functionality it has to be achieved is through the another jar file which i was using in that applet. means how to include an external jar file in applet.jar so that it could also be available to that jsp page also when i will run the jsp page. I need an urgent help. thnx

The other jar would not be part of the applet.jar file. Instead, your applet tag would have an archive attribute that points to both jar files. See for details.
I agree. Here's the link:
