Applet


PDF version

This version of the emulator includes an applet version of the emulator to be embedded in a webbrowser.

Big thanks goes to Bob Fludder at http://www.businessvision.au for testing and helping with this. He is suppose to write a how to and/or deployment for the applet version of the emulator.

Note
Help is needed here with information and or changes to the code to allow a seemless integration. There are probably bugs in there so please be nice when reporting them ;-)

Tested Browsers

Netscape

Internet Explorer

Konqueror - Linux KDE Desktop

Tested Plugins

  • 1.3.1
  • 1.4

One thing about the 1.4 plugin is that it allows a signed jar to be loaded and the proper authority is prompted for the certificate. Once accepted the certificate is then saved thus saving the deployment, installation and importing of keys/signatures to each of the desktops. Very Very nice.

Deployment

There are three applet files that are included:

  • My5250App.html
  • My5250AppPlugin.html
  • My5250SSLindex.php

For signing of applets I am going to have to refer you to the experts at the discussion forum of sun at the following: http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=63&thread=174214

This has the best information on signing and deploying applets. This being my first applet program I am at a lost for help on deployment for the different browsers and I do not have the time to test them all.

Applet Parameters

All command line options are supported for applet parameters except for the -f argument for file properties. Looking for suggestion here!!!!!!!!

Live Demo Applet

First you will need to set up the java policy file for applet access. Instructions can be found here

You can try out a live demo here

If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know. If you have code changes PLEASE PLEASE send them to me.
