I can't remember who it was that had a non-working Java Applet because he
double clicked on the web page. I do remember sending him email that an
applet won't execute locally. If you click on the web page and it opens in
the browser, it opens as "file:///C|/mywebdir/test/applettest.html". I
advised that he open the web page using the server name instead.
I remembered seeing his post again indicating that the java applet still
doesn't work when he tried accessing the web page as
I'm writing again to reiterate that the 'localhost' alias is also
considered 'local' access and java applets won't execute like that either.
You have to say http://mydomainwhereappletresides/applettest.html or
WHY? Because browsers don't let you connect to a host unless it is your
host. Otherwise, a bad bad applet could connect to your mail server, for
example and send threatening email to other folks.
Hope this helps. Was my mystery man, Mr. Jules Bosch? Short-term memory
loss has crept up on this old lady.
