i have an applet application that runs from signed jar files on the local machine. I have a need for the applet to spawn a new jvm instance, one that will survive the original applet instance execution. help? thoughts?

What a strange requirement. That looks like s security problem to the end‑user.
I think you might spawn a new process with Runtime.execute(), but remember all the usual warnings about that.
