JavaApplets HELP!!!

Ok, I am giving all the points I have left.  I need this answer and no one has got it yet.  I have AppletAce by Macromedia.  I am trying to put an applet on my home page.  A banner to be exact.  If I put the applet on my page through frontpage editor and I have AppletAce open, Send the files over and then call up the html doc on the web, it works.  Great right?  Not so.  when I restart my computer the applets are nolonger working.  I assume no one else is even able to see them the first time.  And I must be able to see them working because of some file on my system.  AppletAce does not tell me which files to send to my server. I sent the html doc, the Banners.class and the msgbanners.class files.  I also sent over the other class files in the Powerapplets directory.  I don't know what else to do.  Please someone help.

it is hard to say, what to do . To less facts. Try to put on the web page all classes. It should load just one class, and see errors that will produce if others are missing.

It might be nice if you included the URL so we could look
at your HTML... even if its done with frontpage, that
might give a better idea.

Which navigator do you use? (Netscape 3.00, Communicator, ...)?

I've seen this error before with applet ace
I've a download site for applets and had this question before .
This also was about a banner with appletace .

AppletAce sets the codebase in this case wrong .
The codebase attribute refers to a local file .
But when it uploads the html file this codebase still refers to the local files on your computer .

Applets can't read your local files when they are started from the
web .
This is a security restriction .
So nobody can spy on your system with an applet.

But way does it still work untill you restart the computer ?
Simply because the browser uses the class files from your cache .
When restarted these are no longer available and the
browser will say Applet can't start can't find Banner.class.
or something like that

What do you have to do to correct this ?
Very simple remove the codebase attribute in the applet tag .
Also you have to upload the Banner.class file .
(Appletace also forgets to this in this case )
This class file must be in the same directory as the html file .

Wach out for the letter cassing of this class file .
Some old Windows 3.11 FTP programs change the letter casing
This is because they use the old Dos filenames in stead of the
long windows 95 filenames .
Also they shorten the ectension *.class to *.cla

There are olso some non Windows 3.11 FTP programs that change the lettercassing .

You can check if the browser can find the class file .
Simply type the url to it in the browser .
If the browser finds it you will be asked if you want to download it .

If this doesn't answer the question send me an email .
I get every day this kind of questions .
(Sorry if my english spelling is bad )
