Hello,

I built a applet. I want to include the external jar files in to the applet jar file. How can I do that. I'm getting a black screen when I run the applet. How do I debug it and I'm guess I'm not including the external libraries in the jar

You need to include the jars in the applet's archive tag

see the following

http://netbeans.org/kb/docs/web/applets.html

If you have an extra jar, say a.jar that it needs then the html becomes

<applet code="org.me.hello.MyApplet" archive="HelloApplet.jar, a.jar"/>

and put a.jar in the same location as the applet jar

Let me know if you have any questions

well an applet requires at least two files, the html file, and a jar (or class file).
if you want to include all the classes in a single jar then have a look here

Hi,

I got the Fat Jar plugin for the eclipse and made the jar with all the dependencies but I'm not able to make the html page out of the applet. I can run the applet from class right click run. The applet starts up and java animation run and applet never show up how can I debug this ??

Altering the policy file is only a viable option if the applet has only limited distribution - it has to be altered for any and every box it's run on
