You can make sure your Java-based browser's class path includes the Swing release in one of two ways:
- Use a browser-specific option to set your browser's class path.
- Set the
CLASSPATHenvironment variable.The following instructions give examples of each approach. For more information on setting the class path, see
Warning: Permanently setting the
CLASSPATHenvironment variable can lead to trouble. Instead, try to specify the class path programmatically, such as with a
-classpathcommand-line option. Or specify it at a shell prompt, rather than saving it in a file.
The directory paths used in this section assume that you have installed both the JDK and Swing releases under
/home/me(for Solaris) or on drive C (for Windows). You should adjust the directory paths to reflect your installation.
- If you're using the JDK Applet Viewer, then instead of specifying the
CLASSPATHenvironment variable, you can use the
-Joption of the
appletviewercommand to specify options to the Java interpreter. For example:appletviewer -J-classpath -J.:/home/me/swing-0.3/swing.jar:/home/me/jdk1.1.3/lib/classes.zip http://java.sun.com/Series/Tutorial/post1.0/ui/swingApplet.html
If you choose to set the
CLASSPATHenvironment variable, use a command like the following:Then invoke your Java-based browser as usual.setenv CLASSPATH .:/home/me/swing-0.3/swing.jar
