I am using awt classses from applet (jdk1.1). Browser like Netscape dose not support jdk1.1 awt like setSize, setBounds methods of Component class. For That i have to use java plug-in for awt which supports awt jdk1.1 .
I have put all gui classes and applet in web server. It is not good idea to install supporting awt java plug-in in every machine in internet.
If i put awt.jar file in html as a archive tag. Same error is coming like setSize() is not found in Component beacuase browser sees its own classes first.
So what is the best solution to run awt classes in browser ?

If you install Netscape 4.5 it is a jdk1.1 compliant browser, as well as IE 4.x is.

your users just need to install newer browser version
Netscape 4.06 / 4.07 is Ok too.

if jdk1.1 is your target:
Netscape 4.05 and above  and IE4 works with setSize() and setBounds()

if you are using jdk1.2 then the plug-in is your choice

most browsers are loading classes as follows
1. try to load from their directories
for example Netscape search in C:\...\Netscape\Communicator\Program\Java\Classes
2. try to load from jar files
3. try to load from server from where is the applet
