    Default Trying to get an applet with multiple class files to run in a web page

    Hello All,

    So I've been trying to develop a text adventure and I've got it to the point where I've got it running fine in eclipse's applet viewer, but I can't quite seem to get it to run in a web page. I've put all the class files into a jar file:
    in the same directory on my web page with an html document that calls the applet at:


    Java Code:
    <applet code='woundedTestPackage.MainProgram',
    archive = 'Wounded.jar',
    The code runs fine now, after some minor edits, but I'm worried about the fact that when I access the applet, my browser informs me that the applet has security vulnerabilities. Is there anything I can do to make my applet more secure?
    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    The code for the main class of the applet is located below:
    Java Code:
    package woundedTestPackage;
     * Program creates a GUI that then adds to a String variable story and displays
     * the string in a TextArea output. It receives input from the user into the 
     * JTextArea userInput and then passes that input off for error checking by
     * author, an instance of the StoryTeller class. It also passes the memory 
     * address of an instance of the Story class called theStory to author so that 
     * author can display the text in the  various methods there based on the user's 
     * input.

    Moved from New to Java

    Any applet downloaded to a browser, if it isn't signed with a valid certificate, will generate that warning.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
