Applet .....running in jsdk2.1...........problem

I have stored the html file along with the class file in jsdk2.1\examples. In jsdk2.1 I have started the server by supplying the command startserver.bat. There is no message is displayed in my dos prompt. I am getting a windows explorer on c:\windows\java instead of new Dos prompt.Should I change the System properties. Else What's the solution.
Thanks in advance

I'm not familiar with startserver.bat, but you should be able to just compile the applet and run it by opening the html file in your browser. Are you sure the the applet's class file is in the directory?

Yes, I am sure that the class file is in directory.If I navigate to
d:\jsdk2.1\examples\x.html  , the html files are displayed.
But if I start the server
d:\jsdk2.1\startserver
then navigate
to
http://localhost:8080/examples/x.html
then it displays the error as "page not found"
Thanks in advance

I'm not familiar with JDK2.1, but it seems that it contains some sort of web server which you can run locally. I can only guess that this might be something to do with the server root and paths. Is there some way of setting the server root? Properties file? Parameter in command line/batch file? Maybe if you posted startserver.bat it would help.

Sorry for the confusion I have made.
Here is my task.
1.Writing java applet
2. compiling it.
3. Embedding the applet class file into the html for eg x.html(by using the code atribute of the applet tag)
4. Storing the html file and the class file in the server directory
 for eg/ d:\jsdk2.1\examples
5. starting the server.
 ie,
 d:\jsdk2.1\startserver
6. opening the browser and in the location
  http://localhost:8080/examples/x.html
7. Here is the problem.The html page is not displayed.Page cannot be found message is displayed.

I think the confusion  is OK now
MY question.
Why the html page is not displayed?
Thanks in advance.

CEHJCommented:
OK. Break down the problem into its two main parts:

1. Verifying the applet is viewable
2. Viewing the applet in the 'server'

So, taking 1. first, can you view the applet in your browser by opening the html file?

javasansAuthor Commented:
Yes I can view the applet in the browser.

CEHJCommented:
OK. So now you want to run it in this 'server'?

javasansAuthor Commented:
Yes, I want to run it in the server

CEHJCommented:
OK. Next step is to get the server up and running. Let me know when http://localhost:8080 shows something in your browser.

javasansAuthor Commented:
"The page cannot be displayed" error is displayed on the browser

CEHJCommented:
1. Are you *certain* that the server is running?
2. Are you entering the *exact* address http://localhost:8080?

javasansAuthor Commented:
Here's the problem. As in the first question If I start the server in
d:\jsdk2.1\startserver.bat
window explorer is opened at c:\windows\java. I cognise it as my server is started.

And also I have given the exact address.
