    Applet Loader Splash Screen

    I've written an applet that is about 300 k (pretty large over a 28.8
    modem), and I want to have some type of loading screen. Does anyone
    know if there's already been a generic class written that puts up a "Now
    loading" splash screen with a progress bar? Or is this something I'd
    have to write myself?

    Re: Applet Loader Splash Screen

    There is a progressbar functionality available in Swing, but there is some
    coding that you have to do by your own.
    One of the tricks to ve used is that you will need to dynamically load your
    application separatly using Class.forName("classname"). This means that you
    will need to make a dynamic loader application with progressbar separatly,
    while making sure that there are no references to classes of your main
    application (by not using the import statement that loads your java
    library). You will need to use a generic class or interface to interact with
    your dynamically loaded class.
    There must be some examples available, but dont have them right now.
