Subject Re: placing jar file
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2003 11:22:23 GMT

Thanx for ur reply..i got ur point ..what u mean to say is that jar file has to be kept at
two places- one for the interanl tomcat use and other for the client?? ...but isn't it that
 the servlet throws the jar to the client once for all. and once client browser has the jar
file, then why should it access the server again for the jar?
