Database Problems in IE4.0

Hi,

I am using Symantec Visual Café Database Development Edition, with the dbANYWHERE database server.  I have developed a couple of applets that access dbIII databases (foxpro), and they work fine when I run them under a personal web server. Here is the PROBLEM:

I try to view the applet over the internet from an external source, and I get the following error in IE4.0 ----  Error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFound symantec/itools/db/net/SocketReader.class.

I'd appreciate any ideas on how to solve this problem.  Why would the applet run fine over the personal web server and not over the internet?

Thanks soooo much for any help,

This kind of error happens when an applet tries to use a class but can't find it. The
symantec/itools/db/net/SocketReader.class is probably stored in one of the JARs of the
symantec package. You will have to put this JAR on the Web server too. Assuming that
you have bundled your applet in MyArchive.jar and that the Symantec archive containing
the expected class is Symantec.jar, the applet tag will look like the following:

<APPLET CODE="MyApplet.class" ARCHIVE="MyArchive.jar, Symantec.jar"
                WIDTH=... HEIGHT=...>
</APPLET>

Like this, the Symantec archive will also be loaded through the Net.

For more general infor. please read the following:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/applet/appletsonly/html.html

You hadn't the problem with your personal web server because the Symantec archive was
probably in your CLASSPATH. Hence, the browser VM had no problem to find the classes
needed to make the applet work.
