my java 3D can run in appletviewer but not my browser

I compiled the following codes:-

import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.event.*;
import com.sun.j3d.utils.applet.MainFrame;
import com.sun.j3d.utils.geometry.ColorCube;
import com.sun.j3d.utils.universe.*;
import javax.vecmath.*;

public class HelloUniverse extends Applet {
public BranchGroup createSceneGraph() {
// Create the root of the branch graph
BranchGroup objRoot = new BranchGroup();

// Create the transform group node and initialize it to the
// identity. Enable the TRANSFORM_WRITE capability so that
// our behavior code can modify it at runtime. Add it to the
// root of the subgraph.
TransformGroup objTrans = new TransformGroup();

// Create a simple shape leaf node, add it to the scene graph.
objTrans.addChild(new ColorCube(0.4));

// Create a new Behavior object that will perform the desired
// operation on the specified transform object and add it into
// the scene graph.
Transform3D yAxis = new Transform3D();
Alpha rotationAlpha = new Alpha(-1, Alpha.INCREASING_ENABLE,
0, 0,
4000, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0);

RotationInterpolator rotator =
new RotationInterpolator(rotationAlpha, objTrans, yAxis,
0.0f, (float) Math.PI*2.0f);
BoundingSphere bounds =
new BoundingSphere(new Point3d(0.0,0.0,0.0), 100.0);

// Have Java 3D perform optimizations on this scene graph.

return objRoot;

public HelloUniverse() {
setLayout(new BorderLayout());
Canvas3D c = new Canvas3D(null);
add("Center", c);

// Create a simple scene and attach it to the virtual universe
BranchGroup scene = createSceneGraph();
SimpleUniverse u = new SimpleUniverse(c);

// This will move the ViewPlatform back a bit so the
// objects in the scene can be viewed.


// The following allows HelloUniverse to be run as an application
// as well as an applet
public static void main(String[] args) {
new MainFrame(new HelloUniverse(), 256, 256);

It will run when I did it with appletview but when I run it with my browser it shows the foolowing errors java.lang.NoClassDefFound? Anyone tell me how to make it works in browser. Does Direct X version (which i am using) or OpenGL version has anything to do with it?

I had two 3D applets which are done in more conventional ways without using java 3D, check them out at
