MakeApplet generates an Applet corresponding to a BeanBox layout. The data and classes needed for this Applet are packaged into a JAR file. The Applet itself is a Bean and it can be read back into the BeanBox if desired. At construction time, the generated Applet uses serialization data only if it contains beans with hidden-state. Note, other builders may use different techniques to reconstitute a compound bean. This directory contains the following files: JugglingFool2.html A test html file for displaying the applet. It requires a JDK1.1-compliant browser. The APPLET tag references the JAR files described next JugglingFool2.jar This JAR file packages .class files and serialized data, if any, so it can be referenced by the HTML file. This JAR file depends on the JAR files listed next. support.jar This JAR file contains a few support classes that are used by the generated classes. misc.jar buttons.jar juggler.jar These JAR file(s) describe the Beans that were instantiated in the BeanBox and packaged into MyApplet. JugglingFool2_files This directory contains source files, data, if any, and Makefiles. It is possible to do small adjustments to the generated sources and create a new JAR file. *************** BROWSER SUPPORT The generated applet requires full JDK1.1 support. The appletviewer tool included in the JDK1.1 distributions can be used. Alternatively you can use the HotJava browser. The latest versions of Navigator and Internet Explorer only partially support JDK1.1. The failures in IE4.0 include lack of support for the Class.getResource() call. In particular, this means that the Juggler bean (in juggler.jar) will not be able to show its image. IE4.0 does support getResourceAsStream() which is used by the generated Applet to acquire serialized information on its beans. Note that an Image can be created from an InputStream by first creating a byte array and then using Toolkit.createImage(). Navigator 4.04 generates a security exception from getResourceAsStream() invocations. We expect this to be resolved promptly HotJava 1.1, and 1.1.1 make a distinction in security checks between the URLs "file:/" and "file:///"; an applet denoted by the first one will work but one using the second will not: it will raise a security exception while doing getResourceAsStream()
