Hi there, well I seem to be having some trouble retrieving a cookie from a JApplet.  The code I have works fine in an Applet, but not a JApplet.  I am just trying to get a cookie from the browser called "Session".  I was using this:

  public String getCookie()
  {
     /*
      ** get all cookies for a document
      */
     try
     {
        JSObject myBrowser = (JSObject) JSObject.getWindow(this);
        JSObject myDocument = (JSObject) myBrowser.getMember("document");
        String myCookie = (String) myDocument.getMember("cookie");
        if (myCookie.length() > 0)
           return myCookie;
     }
     catch (Exception e)
     {
        e.printStackTrace();
     }
     return "?";
  }

But the JSObject.getWindow takes in an Applet.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

Japplet is a subclass of Applet so that code is fine.
ie. you can pass a JApplet anywhere where an Applet is expected.

Have you tried running it with a JApplet, or are you still thinking how to do it?

I have tried it from an Applet and a JApplet, but with my JApplet I get this exception from the

JSObject myBrowser = (JSObject) JSObject.getWindow(this);  

netscape.javascript.JSException
      at netscape.javascript.JSObject.getWindow(Unknown Source.)

Can I not just pass the JApplet in using this, since it is in the scope of the JApplet?  Thanks.

Ok I figured it out.  You cannot call this function from the JInit or else it will fail.  I guess the browser hasn't loaded the JApplet fully by then.  Thanks all for the sanity check.
