--- Problem ---

The problem I'm experiencing is IcedTea fails to load an applet that has
multiple JAR files where other classes and resources are stored (a base class

--- Description ---

I'm using a Virtual PC image of Linux-Fedora 13 with the stock OpenJDK/IcedTea
runtime to launch a simple applet within the Firefox web browser.

There's multiple scenarios where the web page fails to load the applet.  Note: 
All scenarios use the HTML "EMBED" parameter to embed the applet within the web

Scenario 1 and 2:  Launching an applet which uses classes from another JAR file
(a base class library) fails to load.  This fails with or without the use of a
JNLP file specified within the HTML "EMBED" tag.

Scenario 3 and 4:  Launching an applet where the base classes are all packaged
into 1 "main" JAR file.  Launching the applet with the JNLP file fails; whereas
launching the applet without the JNLP file successfully loads it into the web

--- Examples and Source Code ---

I've created an example web page that demonstrates this error (source code is
also provided) located here:
