This should be an easy question for you guy, please help.
Currently, I'm building a website, which allow my visitors to upload files by drag & drop.
I found JUpload ( the GPL version at http://sourceforge.net/projects/jupload/
and I'm able to set it up under Windows. My goal is to use this Java applet on Linux.
I don't know anything about JAVA and I don't know how to compile the JAVA source code. Inside the "src" folder, there are several .java files. I tried to use "javac" and some of the .java files were able to turn into .class files and some could not (for some reason)
My question is.. for the binary applet that I downloaded, it is in .jar format. How do I make a .jar file from all those .class files??
What is .class and .jar anyway?
In general how do I compile a JAVA applet? What tools do I need?
Do I really need to recompile the applet? Can the same applet work in both Windows and Linux OS?
Please help this JAVA newbie
