Subject Re: [repost] loading class files

I suggest you put YourApplet.class together with your
html/image or other "static contents), for ex. :
("staticContent" is a folder made by you)

reference email :-)

I suggest you also read the Application Developer's Guide included with
Tomcat.  The Tomcat 4 version is also online at:

>From the point of view of the server, applet classes and JAR files are
just static content.  Therefore, they should be placed in the same
directory as your static HTML pages, ***not*** under /WEB-INF.
