Hello Everbody,Currently I am working on a Java project which consists of hundreds of class files.  Much overhead time will be wasted during the network transfer.  Accordingly, these class files can be pack them into one big file by ZIP.  My problem is how to make the HTML file notify the browser for such scheme.  What I know is an HTML tag called <ARCHIVE> is doing this job.  However, I do not know how implement it actually.

The following is from Netscape's Docs:

 <applet archive="Nuclear.zip"
    code="NuclearPlant.class"
    width=680 height=473>
  </applet>


This will cause the file Nuclear.zip to be downloaded to the user's
disk, and will search it for the NuclearPlant class and the classes it
requires. The zip file is found relative to the codebase path, and must
not be compressed.  Classes not in the zip file will still be searched
for via the old mechanism if required.
