Why can't I see my Swing applet running in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5?
Secondly you should make the Java virtual machine load the appropriate .jar files.
A solution could be to copy the swingall.jar in the client computer where you are using Explorer and set the classpath properly.
For example if you copy swingall.jar in c: you have to set CLASSPATH =%CLASSPATH%;c:swingall.jar;
A better solution is to install the Java Plug-in in the client computer.
These two solutions are neither clean nor realistic since you are setting a hard constraint on your clients, namely the existance of a .jar or of a Plug-in.
I'd like to use Swing in an applet but don't want to force everyone to download the Java Plug-in or the complete 2 MB swingall.jar file. Can I reduce the file to only those classes I need? What about the license?
How can I make my JApplet automatically download the Java Plug-in needed to run Swing applets?
How do I run Swing Applets in a Browser?
