I remember reading that if you want to use swing in an applet, the user has to install the plugin every time they run it. Is this true? How big is the plug-in? Anybody know if there's a version for the mac? Thanks, e

Eric, No, the user does not have to re-install the plug-in every time, just once. The download page is: http://java.sun.com/products/plugin The size depends on which version you choose. For example, the internationalized version (~8MB) is larger than the English version (~5MB). According to Sun's Java plug-in FAQ site:
Q: Does Java Plug-in Software work on platforms other than Microsoft Windows or Solaris (for example, Mac OS, AIX, Linux, HP-UX, etc.) versions of IE or Navigator? A: Sun has made Java Plug-in Software available for porting to all operating system providers. For information about support for Java Plug-in Software on other operating systems, please contact the operating system provider.
Hope this helps. Stephanie
