Update 10 and pack200: what's the secret?
What's the secret in getting pack200 to work with Update 10 applets? I have an extremely simple example applet that does nothing more than print "Hello World" to the console and I am trying to get pack200 to work with it.
Everything works fine until I remove the applet1.jar and leave only the .pack.gz version. The result is a ClassNotFoundException for the applet concerned. The documentation indicates that the first attempt to download will be the .pack.gz version and the .jar version should only be downloaded if the packed version is unavailable. Well I am not seeing that behaviour. It seems the .jar version has to be there too.
I have attached the extremely trivial HTML and applet JAR. Can someone please try it and show me how to get it to work? Maybe it is just that the JAR has to be there too but then I can't be sure that the packed version is actually being downloaded ever.
And loving it,
