Applet runs fine in appletviewer but not browser

Posted by Miguel Laborde on August 25, 2001 at 8:07 PM

Hello all,
I have a problem with respect to a small chat client that I've written in applet form. Everything runs perfectly when I try running it through the appletviewer, however I get an error message saying 'Example can't be instantiated' or along those lines when I try running it in the browser. I've narrowed it down to the point where I establish a socket connection to the host. If I comment this line out then the applet loads fine, however as soon as I remove the commented out section it no longer functions. This isn't a security issue as it is connecting to the same system that the applet is being downloaded from. I suppose my question is this - is there a way to step through the applet as its being loaded in the browser? I would write debug logging... except applets can't write to the HD =) Anyone other alternatives?

Thank you,
