Does anyone know a way of giving quick response times to users when they interact with a Java applet on a web site? This is because an applet uses many classes that need to be downloaded everytime the user accesses the page. Two suggestions have been that a) the class names are reduced in length and b)create a plugin so that the first time the user uses the site they can download the plugin that will put the class files on the hard drive, making access quicker next time. I was wondering if there were any better suggestions for quicker access. Thank you.
