Develop applet client code

Applet clients have the following setup requirements...

Unlike typical applets that reside on either Web servers or WebSphere Application Servers and can only communicate using the HTTP protocol, applet clients are capable of communicating over the HTTP protocol and the RMI-IIOP protocol. This additional capability gives the applet direct access to enterprise beans.

  1. Run the appserver client installation.

  2. Select the applet client option.

  3. Install an applet client.

  4. Install the WAS plug-in for the browser. From the WAS Java Plug-in control panel, enter the following code<product_installation_dir>\properties\client.policy
    -classpath <product_installation_dir>\properties

    Note that The previously entries are automatically placed into the WebSphere Application Server control panel for the Java plug-in user who installed the WebSphere Application Sever Application Client. If this sample is being run by a user other than the person who installed the client, the user must enter the entries.

    • The Java Run-Time Parameters field is similar to the command prompt when using command line options. Therefore, you can enter most options available from the command prompt (for example, -cp, classpath, and others) in this field as well.

    • Access the control panel from the Start menu. Click Start > Control panel > select the product Java plug-in.

    • The applet container is the Web browser and the Java plug-in combination. You must first install the WAS Applet client so that the browser recognizes the IBM product Java plug-in.

    View the Samples gallery for more information about application clients. Before you run the basicCalculator Sample, ensure the JMS Server is started.
