I'm using a method in java.awt.Color that is in the 1.3 JRE, but not in the 1.1 JRE (and i don't want to force people to download a new plug-in). Is there a way to include java.awt.Color in my JAR file and force the JRE to use the one i included and not the one it has?

You could download the Sun html converter and apply it to your applet tag. The HTML Converter is a tool that automatically converts applet tags to the format required by Java Plug-in, directing the browser to install and run the plugin jvm from the sun server instead of its own jvm.

Julia,
I am almost sure that the html converter forces users to download a new JVM before executing. I don't want to have to force them into that. I was wondering if there was a way around that, by say, just including the only class i use from 1.2/1.3.

Anil,
I have no solution.
I simply caught the unknown method error, and used another method that doesn't work as well (but is in 1.1) in the catch block.
