Hi,

if I run a java application or an applet into a web browser for the firt time (after the PC is booted) there are many seconds to wait until the JVM library code is being cached by windows. I have noticed that this time is very variable, depending on the computer hardware and software. How can this time be reduced? Is there a way to cache JVM library when windows start without starting a java application?

Which version are you using? They say Java 1.6 has reduced the plugin's startup time but I haven't tried it yet.

One thing you can do is to use jar indexing (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/plugin/developer_guide/jar_indexing.html) if you are using multiple jars in your applet. The second thing you can do is a small trick. Have a "invisible" applet in the first page that will force the jvm to start when you load the page. Then subsequent calsl to the jvm will be much faster.
