from my applet, I need to get the url of the html document using JSObject.
(I cannot use applet.getDocumentBase(), because it can be fooled with an html BASE tag).
for explorer I have a working solution, but in netscape, the following code does not work, href turns out to be null.


        JSObject window = getWindow(applet);
        JSObject location = (JSObject)window.getMember("location");
        Object href     = location.getMember("href");

This works on Internet Explorer and Navigator:

Java class code:

import java.applet.Applet ;
import netscape.javascript.* ;
import java.awt.* ;
import java.lang.String ;


public class AppTest  extends java.applet.Applet
{
private String pageURL ;
public netscape.javascript.JSObject js ;

public void init()
{     try
     {
     JSObject js = netscape.javascript.JSObject.getWindow(this) ;
     pageURL = js.getMember("location").toString() ;
     }
     catch(netscape.javascript.JSException e)
     {     e.printStackTrace() ;     }
}
public void paint(Graphics g)
{     g.drawString(pageURL, 10, 10) ;
}
}//class end

----------------------------------------------

HTML code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>f
<BODY>
<Applet code="AppTest.class" width=400 height=200 id=OBJECT1
MayScript     VIEWASTEXT>
</Applet>
</BODY>
</HTML>
-------------------------------------------------

Hope this helps.
