Non-Java-Classes and Java Package Manager (IE4.0)

I have installed classes in IE4's memory using the Java Package Manager.  (JPM)  Now I need access to the gifs (and other non-class files) that are in the same cab file as the OSD. Can anyone help?  I want this to act as a completely dynamic classloader without having to touch the user's CLASSPATH or download the "non-JAVA-class" files to their hardrive.  (My applet is already certified and is trusted)

smithcb, I think that when you pack your code in a jar file the IE4 puts all the files in the jar in its cache and any url that you may open to a resource, is actually taken from the cache. I would expect the same behavior when working with cab files. Give it a try. You can wait some time before loading a gif (hopefully from the cab) and in the delay time - disconnect you machine from the net, and see if the gif comes up.
