Java loading indicator

Whever we execute an applet in xMII, we get the JAVA loading screen for a number of seconds. Is there any way to improve this? We get this at inital load and any subsequent runs too.

    Java applets run at client's end (e.g. in browser). Better hardware (e.g. more memory) and better network components on client workstations will definitely help.

    Hi Scott

    I also faced same problem , If we use more display type in single screen than

    some time ,it does not looks good.

    We can replace this applet part with static images also.

    If you do not want to see JAVA loading screen than you can use Dynamic Graphics.

    Instead of using Applet you can use SVG images.

    Select SVG Object type as per requirement and save it in folder.

    Now use this path in HTML page as image source.

    Because these images are static so when you open user screen it will come directly without any flickring.

    Best Regards

      Thanks Ram, but I need to use the applets for a number of reasons (User input on IBrowser, etc.) What I need to know is if there are any tuning options known that improve the loading time.

      thanks

    Hi Scott,

    I think more memory may help. But, also, check on your client's Control Panel's Java settings. Depending on your version, you will have an Advanced tab. Make sure all of the debugging settings are checked off.

    Also, I've noticed better load times with java 1.4.2_10+. Perhaps, if you are running java 1.5, you may want to try the latest java 1.4.2_x JRE which is available here:

    Java" target="_blank">http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.4.2_12/">Java 1.4.2_12

    If you go back to 1.4.2_x, you'll want to uninstall 1.5 from the Windows Add/Remove Programs and then install 1.4.2_x.

    Scott:

    You should only get this screen the very first time an applet is loaded in a browser session. After that, it should not happen again. If it does, something is desperately wrong with your browser! 😉

      Scott and I work together and experience the same problem. The first time the applet loads there is the Java indicator until our applet appear. I guess what Scott is saying is we have to wait for java to load on every applet on a page and every page we visit that has applets must be loaded the same way. It can be time consuming and tedious. We are just wondering what is the fix for this problem.
