Thanks very much for contacting us. I recently heard about MACSE from an
attendee of the Jalview course two weeks ago, and it is a nice
coincidence that you have emailed, even more so in that you have found a
problem with Jalview!

May I ask what OS you used to identify this problem ? Also, could you
verify that the 'Do I have java' link at http://www.java.com/ reports
that Java is working ? The reason I ask is that as far as I am aware,
firefox 8 and chrome (practically all versions) require JRE1.6.

Do you find the same problems with the non embedded examples on

Forgive me, but I am a little confused by this part of your email. If
you wish to deploy the unpacked .class file set on your site, then you
may simply unpack the jalviewApplet.jar into a directory using a
standard ZIP archiving tool or java's own jartool. Normally, however,
the JRE will be happy both ways, and the jar deployment method can
result in slightly faster applet startup times.
On the other hand, the fact that you have mentioned this suggests
something else might be happening. Are there some specific .class files
that cannot be located in the jalviewApplet.jar, for which you are
seeing 'Class Not Found' exceptions ?
ps. my question regarding .class files excludes requests in your
server's log for the SmarterJmolAdapter.class, which was mentioned in
and can be solved by including the jmol applet jar at
http://www.jalview.org/examples/JmolApplet-12.1.13.jar on the classpath.
