I have created compiled and run many Java programs, but this is my first applet. I am doing a project for school basically to connect a DB to a java applet. I have the class set up and when I run through Netbeans "Run File" It works perfectly. I am able to connect to the DB... no issues at all. So now I just need it to work through an HTML window... This is where my issue starts. I have tried to read as much about applets as I can but still do not understand a lot of what I read.
Yes, your problem is that you are using resources found in JARs which are not available to the applet runtime. You have to move these JARs into someplace reachable by clients (i.e. someplace your web server can share them from), preferably relative to the applet's codebase attribute. Then you add an archive attribute to the applet tag with the path to the JAR. So for example, your codebase is classes, so you might have:
classes/DBApp/ (your appletgui.class here)
classes/lib/ (your .JAR files here)
Then your applet tag might look like:

Thank you I knew it had something to do with that .jar. Everything is working perfectly now.
