I want to know what are persistant applets? Are they the applets that get downloaded in the C:\WINNT\downloaded program files\ ?
My requirement is the following:
Everytime we access the applet it should not get downloaded from the server but from the local machine say..from.. C:\WINNT\downloaded program files\. Only when there is an update in the applet it will download from the server else it will pick it up from the local machine. As a comparison, perhaps the best and most common example of a persistent Java applet is Shockwave � a familiar download for Internet users. We want to do something similar to this.I have no idea how to go about this...can somebody throw some light on this?
I have already tried using the following:
<applet code="ReportCreatorApplet.class" width=100% height=90% archive="applet.jar">
<param name=cache_archive value="applet.jar">
<param name=cache_option value="Browser">
It looks like it is caching but not actually downloading in C:\WINNT\downloaded program files\.

You may want to consider Java Web Start. Seems to be the bset possible option to me for what you require.

Yes I am already using Java Web Start.... still it doesn't download where I need it. I have even changed the path in the 'Cache' tab in Java Web Start to C:\WINNT\downloaded program files\....still no luck :roll:
