Using a java applet

I have a simple rails application. In a web page I want to use a Java applet. To do so, I put the jar file of this applet on the public folder of my rails application.

The code I am using to execute the applet on my page is the following one:


However, when I execute the application I have the following error:

ActionController::RoutingError (no route found to match "/applet/TstApplet.class " with {:method=>:get}):


ction_controller/routing.rb:1292:in `recognize_path'


ction_controller/routing.rb:1282:in `recognize'


her.rb:40:in `dispatch'

Am I doing something wrong or it is just not possible to execute a java applet into a web page of a rails application?

Thank you


Paulo, you will need to setup a route in ./config/routes.rb that looks something like this:

map.connect '/applet'


I don't think anything is needed in routes.rb if the files physically exist in the public folder. I think the problem in this case is that the applet files were installed in the wrong place.

If you are trying to load an applet called applet.TstApplet, you need to have the following file: RAILS_ROOT/public/applet/TstApplet.class

i.e. the java package hierarchy gets turned into a directory hierarchy.

hi all i have had same problem.

thanks to all! to the next tip!
