Applet loading progress meter for java1.1
Posted on 2001-08-20
I have a largish applet with images that at present is stored in a signed cab file.
I wish to have a progress indicator so that the users
can see something happening.
This is similar to another question posed a few months back which objects answered
However I am using java1.1 and objects answer would not work as it uses URLClassLoader (not available on 1.1 I reckon)
ANother proposed answer (from matt c) was :
- get a certificate and overrride the ClassLoader to load all your classes. On each download of a class,
you will update your progress bar.
Could anyone enlighten me please
Ideally I would want to get the progress indicator up asap
then pull in a jar file with say 50K of classes or images
and update the progress indicator
repeat the above 9 more times and it's done..
And the browser would need to cache the pulled in Jar files ...
