Hi
  I have built a simple server program to answer to browser requests (only to GET). But I didn t success to download correctly HTML page with an applet. The browser downloads correctly the HTML page but not the applet contained in this page. I have every time the same message, in the java console:

# Applet exception: error: java.lang.ClassFormatError: Bad magic number
java.lang.ClassFormatError: Bad magic number
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java)
at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.loadClass(AppletClassLoader.java)

What can I do to make the browser downloads correctly an applet.

Thanks

Adel

Probably...problems with case sensitivity
Check CODEBASE, CODE and applet name in directory
Better to have URL to check :)

The magic number is the first few bytes of a file that
determine what type of file it is.

If the magic number is bad, then the file probably
needs to be recompiled.  It may have been corrupted
somehow.  

Can you view it with the appletviewer?

Try recompiling it, that should do it.

Thanks for your answser.
But the applet is not corrupted, because the borwser downloads it correctly from the public_html when I use another server.
So the problem is somewhere else, may be because I don t send to the browser the correct information or the correct file format..
