I've been experimenting with the new draggable applet functionality and I have it mostly working, but have a few questions about what happens when you close down the browser while the applet is running outside it.
As far as I can tell, when you drag the applet out of the browser it is still an applet and still uses the browsers' session information - however once the browser is closed it seems to turn into a Java Webstart application, which makes sense, but what happens to the session information? For our applet we lose the session information once the browser is closed and so our client-server communication fails.
Can anyone advise me on how to maintain a session in this situation?
