    Default Java and JNLP

    Hi ,
    I need help in Java and JNLP as I am new to java.
    problem statement: I want to develop an applet and want include in any webpage and when I run this webpage from any browser then it should download an exe file located on any server and after download the file locally in browser, exe should be automatically executed behind the scene.
    how is this possible? Please help.

    Please send me any code to accomplish this.
    thanks in advance


    Thanks
    Parvendra

    What you have described is not exactly trivial, and may not be possible from an applet. Break your problem up into smaller pieces- how do you download a file? How do you run a file? Start small, and don't combine the pieces until you have them working separately.

    That's not how this works. We can help you with specific technical questions, but nobody is going to write the code for you.

    What it sounds like you want is when a user to visits a webpage, their browser downloads software from said webpage which runs 'behind the scenes' on their computer? Sounds an awful lot like something malicious - spyware, adware, virus. I see little reason to help you unless you prove otherwise.

    I absolutely agree with this.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your all suggestions.

    1. [KevinWorkman] I agree that no one is going to write a code for me. But this is something what I shared that what is the correct way to do it. I understand the steps you suggested but what exactly need to do? Please consider as I am a PHP developer.

    2. [moderator] I am not any hacker or so. I work in a reputed company and we have developed a system just like GoToMeeting. Now our requirement is to run a webpage ,which would include a applet and it will download our exe file and install it automatically on the user machine. Also, it needs all authentication and security certificate before its being downloaded to someone's machine.

    I hope this clarifies and prove my authenticity.

    Thanks
    Parvendra

    I told you exactly what to do. Figure out how to download a file in Java. Figure out how to run a .exe, and whether that's possible in an applet. Keep those steps separate until you have them both working perfectly by themselves.

    Three worthless comments (not counting this one) and a "guilty until proven innocent" accusation. Welcome to javaprogrammingforums! Now go "figure out" your problems, it seems they can be broken down into separate steps - yay!

    You joined the forums just to post this worthless negativity? A huge part of programming is breaking problems up into smaller steps. When you get the smaller steps separated, and make an attempt at one of them, we can help. But before that, what can we do? That's going to be true everywhere.

    If I see any more posts like this, I'm going to take moderator action.

    I came to this forum having searched for an issue similar to the originators. The patronising, self-satisfying, accusatory responses encouraged my own worthless negativity.

    If you wish to contribute then by all means do so. If you have a problem, then why not ask your question? If this particular question wasn't answered to your liking, why not try and encourage an answer that does, rather than acting like a Troll. This unproductive banter is going nowhere. Thread locked
