Recently, I’ve found a way to download an applet and run it from local hardisk. You might have figure this thing out, but I haven’t found any articles on the internet wich show me how exactly to download applet from a web and run it without internet connection. So this is it. This is , actually, rather experimental but you can give it a try:
1. I assumed the applet you just want to ‘catch’ is on this web address : http://www.catchme.com/ifyoucan.php
2. Then open that page until the applet loaded and it can running.
3. On new tab:
type : opera:cache
-for Firefox & Chrome:
type : about:cache
4. After the list of cache shown, search (you can use Ctrl+F) for exact phrase of the web address http://www.catchme.com/ifyoucan.php
5. If you can find the link on the lists, then you’ll figure that the link is not only showing http://www.catchme.com/ifyoucan.php
but there will be other file that shown on the lists that came from the link. that file could be image(.jpg) CSS (.css) or anything. But what we need here is a class file (.class).
6. Yup, download (save link as) each link that is known as the class files. It might look like this:
or something like that.
7. after you download all class files according to the link, next thing to do is to save the link page as an html file and the put the class files you’ve download to a same folder wich you save the html file before.
8. the next time you open the html file without internet connection I hope you’ll find the applet working just fine like you open it when online. otherwise, maybe you haven’t download all the class files, or there might be another reasons that prevent you to do such thing. 🙂 wich I don’t know yet.
Applet is a client side program. Simply, when you see an applet running on your browser it actually stored into your own browser cache before it can be displayed on the broswer. So in applet case, your computer is the one who run the program wich means the program should be stored in your computer and you can take it.
