Hi, i've done an applet and i've insert the applet html tag in a servlet class.
When i try my applet in a browser it works as well,
but when i try it under tomcat it doesn't work: "load applet-name not found".
Another thing i've noted is that java compiler of jdk_sdk1.3 compile the applets even creating a .java~ file and the browser run it correctly.
When i try to compile it with the jdk_sdk1.4 the compiler produce only a .class file but the browser don't load it.
Why?
Thanks,Gabri

Probably the problem is related to how the browser locates the applet class files. The browser has to make a separate request to the server, if there is no absolute path to the classes provide, the browser tries to make one based on the way it addressed the servlet which never works.
You get the same problem with image files if the src reference is relative.
The solution I like is to provide a <BASE tag in the html page to tell the browser how to request the applet class files and other resources.
