I am trying to use a  Java Midi API from outside of Sun's API.  The API is called MidiShare and I am having a great deal of trouble getting it to work. Whenever I try to load a MidiShare applet I revieve this information......

AppAccelerator(tm) 1.0.2a for Java, x86 version.

>  at java.lang.Thread.run(Compiled Code)

The MidiShare API consists of three main parts.  A Player32.dll which is supposed to go into the windows system directory, two more dll's (JMidi.jll, Jplayer.jll) that go into the Netscape/program/java/bin folder, and a class folder called grame which goes directly into the Netscape/program/java/class directory.(I have done all this)
 
I am using the JDK1.1 and Nescape Nav gold 3.1 on a pentium system.  Can you please tell me what this message means and what I need to do to fix this problem.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

You are trying to download native code as an applet, which is throwning a securtity exception (line 4).  Native interfaces, like your dll's, are not allowed in applets.  Allowing such would make Java as insecure as ActiveX.  In addition to being insecure, it makes the Java applet platform depended; it would not run on a Mac or Sun machine.

The NoClassDefError is a result of the security exception disallowing the classes/dlls to be loaded.

Unfortunately, since it is a security exception, there is no fix for this.
