Java.Net Quest

     I am creating a java applet for the client portion and an application for the server portion. I've learned that I need to run the application from the same location as my applet.
      To test my setup, I loaded these files while my files were stored on my LOCAL Hard Drive. I ran the application part using Metrowerks Java and then loaded the applet from my drive using Netscape. This didn't work! But when I loaded the applet from Apple's Applet viewer, it worked great.
      Now I understand that I must somehow run my application from an offsite server where my files for my web pages and applets are stored. The problem is that I don't know how to do this (Telnet?). I currently have an ISP who hosts my domain name as well as another company who hosts my other domain name.

      My application must be running at all times, so how do I do this with an offsite server that's simply hosting my site.

If you have any suggestions it would be much appreciated.

Note: Mac, Sys 7.6.1

Thanks,

I wonder where you came up with the term "boot" the application.

An application can be stored as .class or .zip files on a directory that's accessible to the host where the application runs.  

The netscape browser will load an applet from the same server that delivered the HTML page that contains the applet.  If your HTML is in server directory ~/pages, you might have the applet in ~/pages/applet.  Put all the .class files that your applet needs in this directory.
