Searching for an expert using 4.22

carolinaadi I am trying to compile my files in my source folder.  I have done so in the past for a software script I use with my athletes and it worked fantastic as I was also able to change all of the words from 'ebook' to 'software'.  

However, I am trying to do it again with a new script with no luck at all.  Here is the issue:

-I need to run the mail file which is a .jar file.  I have tried to create an index.htm file but canot figure out how to use this to automatically run the .jar file.  So the user will never actually see the index.htm file at all but it's purpose will be just to run the main file for the script.

Is this possible?

thanks for any help you can provide!

Storyman Hi Carol,

The .jar file is for Java. Right?

You might want to find a forum for Java programmers and ask them.

When you figure out if it is possible and how to do it let the rest of us know.

carolinaadi Thanks for the reply.  Basically do you mean ask a Java forum about an html script to automatically run a .jar file?

Storyman Yes. Program languages other than Java may use .jar files, but Java is the only one that I know of (not an expert on program languages here.)

It would seem that you would want to test to verify that Java is installed--if it is Java you need.

Alaska If you have already used the applet successfully, you should be able to cut-n-paste the calling script into your new page, something like:

<applet code=NameOfApplet.class name=NameOfApplet archive=NameOfApplet.jar
width=300 height=300>
<param name="bgcolor" value="ffffff">
<param name="fontcolor" value="000000">
Your browser is not Java enabled.

Of course, the .jar file needs to be present in the current directory as well.

Perhaps this JavaBoutique article can help;

Storyman Roger,

Do you have any idea the percentage of Window machines that have Java installed and enabled? I hesitate using something that requires the user to fetch a plugin or additional program.

Unfortunately, I don't get that statistic from my web report (I gotta change site monitors) so I found c-net.us:


they report a known 84 percent of browsers are Java enabled.

Who am I to argue?

Storyman Thanks for the link. The stats mentioned came from thecounter.com, which gives no indication of how or where the figures were developed. I wish the stats were close to reality.
