Multi-page TIFF viewer

I'm trying to implement a TIFF viewer in a 10g form,
TIFF's will have multi-pages so I think I can't use
any pre-built commands.

I downloaded a demo of a commercial application
called 'ViewOne Standard' and I'm currently trying
to get that working but have not succeeded yet.

Now Forms itself is a Java Applet, and ViewONE is also an Applet,
I need ViewONE to be integrated within a form, no separate window.
I suspect that the only way to get this working is loading ViewONE
as a Bean within the form, but I'm not sure where to put
the applet 'executables', what to put in the formsweb.cfg
and associated HTM file.
Can this even be done?

Can someone point me to an example of what I'm trying to do,
or let me know if there's a better way to do this.

    Could you provide a link that points to that tool ?

    Sorry for the delayed reply as I cannot access from work.

    Here is the link to the tool...

    Here is what I did so far:

    I copied ViewONE files to my \forms\java directory
    Added the ViewONE ji.jar reference to my 'archive_jini' parameter in formsweb.cfg
    Create a Bean item on my form
    Added 'ji.applet.jiApplet.class' to my Implementation class property for item

    when I invoke the layout, I get the following error:
    FRM-13008 Cannot find JavaBean with name 'ji.applet.jiApplet.class'.

    Appreciate any info to get this going.

    If I look at the html launching page, the main class is ji.applet.jiApplet
    But, you have to find in the documentation what are the methods you can use in this bean to choose the image to display.
