    Unable to attach Java agent

    843798
      I am using the [Attach API|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/attach/index.html] to attach and manipulate other JVMs.

      When I attach and load an agent to a JVM that was started through the main method no errors occur. Then, when I do the same exact procedure on an Applet JVM that is embedded in a browser, I get this weird error:
      Exception in thread "main" com.sun.tools.attach.AgentLoadException: Agent JAR not found or no Agent-Class atribute
          at sun.tools.attach.HotSpotVirtualMachine.loadAgent(HotSpotVirtualMachine.java:99)
          at com.sun.tools.attach.VirtualMachine.loadAgent(VirtualMachine.java:508)
          at Attachment.main(Attachment.java:9)
      The agent JAR does exists and it does have an Agent-Class attribute.

      What could be the cause of this?
