Removing CLASSPATH Environment Variables

In the UNIX operating environment, if the Java applet does not run after you have verified that your Java archive is correctly specified, then you should remove any CLASSPATH environment variables that have been set. The Java archive files contain all the required classes to run the applets. Your CLASSPATH might point to old versions of the required classes (for example, for use with the webAF software). This can cause the applets to fail to load. Most applications enable you to specify a CLASSPATH at startup, by using a startup option. This is often safer for running multiple clients than using the environment variables.
