hi guys,

I got an applet wich work in my html test page but don't work once "printed" in a php page on the distant server. I don't know much about applets so i ran with purely logical test at first:
tried on several client computers : no changes
thinked it can came from the page being hosted on my computer, you know something with dependences:uploaded the html test page on free hosting and it work.
uploaded the same page on the distant server to know if it may be an error of server configuration.
Didn't work at first, so i check java ranch and figured it may came from bad uploading and it was the case.
But nothing to do about the php page it just keep not working.

html test page code:

and on the php page:

I am just out of ideas right now, so if anyone experienced anything similar to this i'd be glad to get some help.
Tell me if i should add some extra information or if you didn't get something i wrote because of my bad english.

Thank you java gurus in advance.

I am not sure, whether you can run Applets within PHP applications as Applets are based on Java.

Not many get the right opportunity !

solved it turned relative

to absolute

It's weird, i thought the path was relative to the file you are in, in this case the php page echoing the "<applet>" but it seems to be relative to the generated html, wherever it may be. You may answer me that i am mistaking with client and server side but honestly sometimes it's tricky ...

Anyway quick one: It didn't find the jar.

Seriously why not an "applet not found" message...
I agree. Here's the link:
