Browser Errors

When trying to run an applet developed with the 1.1.6 JDK - I get the following error in Communicator:

# Applet exception: class Fly not found
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: java/awt/event/MouseListener
  at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(Compiled Code)
  at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.loadClass(Compiled Code)
  at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.findClass(Compiled Code)
  at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.loadClass1(Compiled Code)
* at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.loadClass(Compiled Code)
  at netscape.applet.AppletClassLoader.loadClass(Compiled Code)
  at netscape.applet.DerivedAppletFrame.run(Compiled Code)
  at java.lang.Thread.run(Compiled Code)

I know there are some problems with Java support with the current browsers - is there a deprecated method that will preclude the error message??

Thanks,

This means that the browser is an older version which is using the
JDk 1.02 instead of the JDK 1.1.

MouseListener is part of the new event delegation model with JDK 1.1,
and if the browser cannot find the class, that means it's running 1.02.

Recommendation? You should download the newest version of the
netscape. It will come with the JDK 1.1 support.

Hmm.. The program runs fine with your 1.1.6 JDK right?

Try and download the new netscape 4.06, see if that'll fix it.

Navigator is part of communicator. Navigator is the web browsers,
while communicator have the browser along with some extra
email and groupware utilities.

Yes,  It works just fine with the appletviewer - that's what was puzzling...

I meant to say Navigator 3.0 not the 4.05 Navigator - sorry...

I will try at home - I have 4.5 and can down load 4.06 (even though 4.5 should offer the same or better) to see - if that fixes it...

Thanx
