do SCRIPT element support archive="test.jar"?

If you were using JSP pages, you might be able to use .jar files since those encapsulate stand alone classes.

In NN4 and IE4 (not sure about newer/older versions) the src attribute of the <Script> tag is complemented by the Archive attribute.
Trisonics, maybe the JAR isn't in the right format. I think Netscape provide a tool to create JAR files, that may be of use.

in m$ inet sdk
archive Property only avail for OBJECT
HocusPocus: can u give me url on NN4 and IE4 about archive for 'src'?

We discussed this a long time ago in a thread about preloading js for the next page [webmasterworld.com], but no one seems to have any hands-on with it. Given its disappearance from O'Reilly, I'm infering that browser support has vanished. Trisonics' experience seems to confirm that, because the code looks right, according to the old reference.

HocusPocus, I have tried Netscape tool "signtool" also.
So good information is also given in "http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/docs/guide/plugin/developer_guide/rsa_signing.html"
I have tried with both signed and unsigned jar.

Had a go with the signtool also. Used the Netscape Developer one. (signtool13WIN95.zip)
Could get NN 4.7 to read the contents of the Jar but no luck with IE 6 or Moz or NN 6+. Remembered the issue with IE and Applets so also tried CAB and Zip formats for curiosity's sake and completeness, same error "Object Expected".
Tried to help but not further forward. I think tedster and Xuefer are very much correct in saying that it is depreciated.

I tried unsuccessfully.
Can you give the steps? It should be easier with unsigned JAR.

my question is: how do u guys make use of it
as u say, only ** v4 support it
most of the users use ie 5.0+ & netscape 4.x or netscape 6.x+

For test purposes-
before you generate a key give yourself a password, by going to the navigator security info window.
Once done, open a command prompt.
Change dir to where the signtool.exe is
signtool -G [your_name] -d [your_path_to_netscape]
follow on screen instructions...should say at the end
certificate [your_name] added to database
Now sign your code, but make sure you id the functions in your html eg
<body onload="showAlert()" ID="s1">
Now do something like
signtool -J -k [your_name] [directory_of_files_to_sign]
I did say it was a little cumbersome.

Thanx it worked. Netscape it's working fine.
IE its not working but its not giving any errors. I tried importing the certificate also. But no luck.
Will changing some configuration option help? Any ideas.
