        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Windows XP SP2

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        On upgrading to 1.6.0 from 1.5 all of the applets on our website failed to load, throwing a ClassNotFoundException.

        I managed to get it working in the end - the issue is that we serve our signed JAR file from a page generated in PHP, and the presence of parameters in the URL in the ARCHIVE parameter of the APPLET tag was breaking the caching - it seems to correctly get the file from our website, but then the cache doesn't seem to be able to load the file from disc.

        Basically in my test I created a file called jar.php, which returned either the JAR file (and appropriate headers) if the parameter work=1 was passed in the URL, and nothing if it wasn't. The APPLET tag we use is like this

        <applet name='quoteline' id='quoteline' code=loader3.SunLoaderApplet.class archive='jar.php?work=1' codebase='http://devserv.throg.advfn.com:3029/&#39; width='760' height='39'> etc.

        This the trace of the relevant part:

        Done.

        As you can see the second part of the cache output is missing the trailing "?work=1" parameter.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Create a file called tmp.php in your webserver's root which has the following contents:

        <?
            global $DOCUMENT_ROOT, $work;
            
            //$f = fopen("tmp.log", "a");
            //fwrite($f, "work = $work\n");
            //fclose($f);
            
            if ($work != "1")
                exit;

            Header("Content-type: application/x-java-archive");
            Header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=Test.class");

            readfile($DOCUMENT_ROOT . "/Test.class");

        ?>

        and points at Test.class (replace with any applet) and a webpage with the following APPLET tag

        <applet name='test' code=Test.class archive='jar.php?work=1' width='760' height='39'></applet>


        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The applet should display correctly.
        ACTUAL -
        Applet fails to load with exception given above.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Change the location where we're serving the JAR file from so it doesn't require any parameters in the URL.

        Release Regression From : 5.0u9
        The above release value was the last known release where this
        bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
