Download JAR applet

Hi,

I have created a simple applet - 3 class file as long as an html to invoke it, which seems to work fine. I am now working on the download part, I was able to download the 3 class file and 1 html locally and run from there successfully, but I hope to JAR 3 class file and distribute the JAR along with the HTML. However I had problem after I downloaded the JAR and HTML, "ERror notinit applet". I did some research and found out the JAR has to be signed in order for somebody to use it. Do I have to do it?

I donot want to use ZIP to distribute it since it will require user has WINZIP installed.

Thanks
Pat

The signing requirment is necessary to protect users and the networks users are on.  If you are not prepared to work within normal security requirments, then don't development componnents that hae a potential to deliver malicious content.
