I have made a Java Applet and put it on my web server.

And I want people all over world are able to call this Applet. (ie: they can specifiy the code base in their html document which put in elsewhere and run my java applet)

What is the solution? I know they cannot use my URL as codebase since java has security restriction.

I also see the article below, but still don't know what is needed. How to setup the ion_10.zip ?

Or anyother solution?

Thanks

<APPLET NAME="HELLO" CODE=com.rsi.ion.IONGraphicApplet.class
   ARCHIVE="ion_10.zip"
   CODEBASE="http://ion.fake.com/ion/classes/"
   WIDTH=350 HEIGHT=80
   ALT="ION Applet failed to load. Is Java enabled in your browser?">
Java virtual machine failed to start. Is Java enabled in your browser?
   <PARAM NAME="SERVER_NAME" VALUE="ion.fake.com">
</APPLET>

Create the applet as a java class and put it in the /ion/classes folder.
The codebase and code define together the URL of your applet.
The optional archive contains additional classes packed in a JAR file (or ZIP for that matter) that your applet uses.
If used, the archive must be accessible from the internet as well.

PS
Your applet may be used in HTML pages regardless of the different URLs.
