JRE (and applets) reloads when new applets are started
We have an application that consists of a "static" server applet and one or more client applets. The "static" applet is invisible and loaded in the background and provides common functions/methods to the client applets.
The website first requires that the user logs on, the password is remembered by the server applet.
In 1.6.0_10 (and _11) we have noticed that the server applet is always reloaded when a user opens a new frame that contains a new client applet. This means that the password remembered by the server applet (that was loaded the first time) is gone. This did not happen in older versions of the JRE. The static server applet was loaded only once, and was in memory as long as the webbrowser was open.
If we disable the "Activate Next generation Java plug in" feature it works again.
We can also see that the JAVA-Console is closed and a new one is opened when a new client applet is about to load and communicate with the server applet. It seems that a new session of the JRE is started, and the static server applet is loaded from the beginning again.
Does someone know why this happens now in version _10?
Hope someone can understand my problem, if not let me know and I try explain it in a different way...
