If you are not sure whether your end users' browsers will have
you can deploy your Java applet by manually coding the
<applet> HTML tag, instead of
using the Deployment Toolkit functions.
Depending on the browsers you need to support, you may need to deploy your Java
applet using the
<embed> HTML tag. Check the
W3C HTML Specification for details on the usage of these tags.
You can launch your applet using Java
Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) or specify the launch attributes directly in the
Follow the steps described in the Deploying An Applet topic to compile your source code, create jar file and JNLP file if necessary. The overall steps for deployment are still relevant. Only the contents of your HTML page containing the applet will change.
AppletPage_WithAppletTag.html page deploys the Dynamic Tree Demo applet with an
<applet> tag that has
been manually coded (meaning, the applet is not deployed using the Deployment
Toolkit which automatically generates the required HTML). The applet is still
launched using JNLP. The JNLP file is specified in the
<applet code = 'appletComponentArch.DynamicTreeApplet' jnlp_href = 'dynamictree-applet.jnlp', width = 300, height = 300 />
If your applet does not need special permissions to perform certain sensitive operations, you can also deploy your applet without a JNLP file.
AppletPage_WithAppletTagNoJNLP.html deploys the Dynamic Tree Demo applet as shown in the following code snippet.
