I read an article on IBM's developerWorks site ( http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-javapush/?dwzone=java ) about a technology called JavaPush that would cache an applet. I wanted to know if this was adaptable to Java 1.1 without a plugin. I can get the applet JARs to cache, but I cannot launch the applet from the local system. In the article, the author uses the codebase param to specify a local directory to launch from, but this does not work for me. Also, the author's e-mail address is no longer valid. Any suggestions?

Did you sign the applet? The article says that it requires signed applet.

Also, there is an internal support with html tag feature if you use Java Plug-in from Sun which stores the applet in a secondary temp directory where browsers won't clear the cache.

Good luck as I am trying to find a non-plug-in support for this feature and might go for the signed applet which has it's own complexity with JDK 1.1 support. It's better with JDK 1.2!
