Description of problem:
I have an applet with public static variables.
I deploy the applet in twice in the same page using frames:
- in first frame, load applet and initialize static variable
- second frame use the static variable
Applet is well loaded, but static variable ins'nt share between the two frames.
This worked well with Sun JVM
systematic with Firefox 3.0.14. Didn't try with another browser
value for static variables are not share
static variables should be shared between the two frames
Worked fine with Sun JVM
Sorry, but this is not a bug -- it is by design (each instance is in its own classloader). The plugin specifications do not guarantee that a single JVM/loader will be running all applets. Additionally, allowing cross access creates potential security issues as hidden applets could try and steal information from static variables in running signed applets.
can you provide the url to that specification, and specify wich chapter.
Additionnaly, i don't really understand the matter with security issues. Isn't it the responsability of the applet developer to make sure that sensible information are not easily catchable? for instance by not using static variables to store them?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
