I am trying to create a jython applet.  I am running Windows 2000 pro with Sun's JDK 1.3.1 and I have tried both Jython 2.0 and 2.1a3.  My code runs fine when I execute it with Jython, but when comiling it into the applet with (I have only one .py file named dlClient.py):
 
jython --compiler javac --all --jar downloadClient.jar *.py
 
The .jar is created, but it gives a warning about using a deprecated API.  Then when I try to execute it with the appletviewer, I get an error that says:
 
java.lang.ClassCastException:  dlClient
 
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?  Below, I have posted the code for the .py file as well.
 
from java import applet
from java.awt import Color,Label,Button,GridLayout,Label
from urllib import urlretrieve
import time
 
class downloadClient(applet.Applet):
    def init(self):
 try:
  self.setLayout(GridLayout(0,1))
  self.title = self.add(Label('Download Test', Label.CENTER))
  self.title.setBackground(Color.blue)
  self.title.setForeground(Color.white)
  self.add(Label('Beginning Download ...'))
  # this file is 45.7k in size
  self.startTime = time.time()
  rValue = urlretrieve("http://localhost/reports/detail.pdf")
  rValue = urlretrieve("http://localhost/reports/detail.pdf")
  rValue = urlretrieve("http://localhost/reports/detail.pdf")
  self.endTime = time.time()
  self.elapsedTime = int(self.endTime - self.startTime)
  self.kPerSec = int(137.1/self.elapsedTime)
  self.add(Label('Download Complete'))
  self.add(Label('Amount Downloaded:  137.1 KB'))
  self.add(Label('Time Elapsed:  ' + str(self.elapsedTime) + ' seconds'))
  self.totalSpeed = self.add(Label('Total Speed:  ' + str(self.kPerSec) + ' KB/Sec'))
  self.totalSpeed.setBackground(Color.yellow)
  #self.totalSpeed.setForeground(Color.blue)
 except:
  pass
 
if __name__ == '__main__': 
    import pawt
    pawt.test(downloadClient())
