[NB5.0, jdk 1.5; behavior is little bit different on jdk6 because it contains
1.Create j2se project
2.Create new JAppletForm with name "MyApplet"
4.Select MyApplet in projects view and invoke Run action on it
5.In build/classes there appears MyApplet.html, but when this file is viewed by
browser outside of NetBeans it fails with java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
org/jdesktop/layout/GroupLayout$Group (on java6.0 it works because it contains
The second problem of the concept is that the MyApplet.html is deleted when the
project is rebuilt and recreated when Run is invoked on MyApplet.java.
The third problem is that the MyApplet.html should be created in dist/ folder of
the project and user must be able to run applet by its viewing in browser
because dist/ folder is the common place of deployed project.
This issue has two parts. The applet requires correct code base attribute with
swinglayout.jar. The second part is that the html file is created into build
folder, it should be generated into the dist folder with some reasonable unique
name (fqn of applet class?)
I think that the layout library should be defined by archive attribute, like this:
code="javaapplication1/NewJApplet.class" width=350 height=200>
and the applet will be created under dist folder with name
javaapplication1-NewJApplet.html as Tomas suggested.
Not widely used I guess.
Not for 6.0
Since JDK1.6U10 resurrects applets, let's try to fix this.
Better support for Applet as well as support for Applet with jnlp (Mustang) is required.
The test applet page is not intended to be used externally.
Please use the JNLP base applet deployment.
Project Properties/Web Start.
After turning on and clean & build it generates launch.html in dist folder which uses deployJava.js and JNLP file to start the applet.
