Hello everybody,
What I'm trying to do is to load an image situated "across the wire", on the server side, from my signed applet.
My problem is that the following line takes to long to execute:
Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage("http://....../myImage.jpg");
If I have only one image to load, everything works fine. Instead, if I load more than 5 images (in a FOR cycle), the first is loaded, maybe the second one but the rest comes after a long time. Sometimes even 10 images are loaded very quickly; I'm confused. This process is depending on what?
All my images have about 4-5K, therefore I refuse to believe that the size is a problem. My RAM Memory is 64MB.
One more thing. If I refresh the browser page (IE), is seems to unlock the process and show some more loaded images

If possible, please reply.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Ady

Hi, I just read something about this. The problem is that you are loading images from the Internet, if you can put those images in a .jar file that would be fast to load.

This depends on the connection speed obviously.

Try using a MediaTracker for loading images.
