I have a JApplet that display properly in Netscape 6 (thanks to the embed tag) using the Sun plug-in 1.3.1_01a.
But I cannot control it via Javascript.
I've read here http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3/docs/script.html that
This mechanism permits applets to be accessed from Javascript within Internet Explorer. Unfortunately the current Netscape Plug-in APIs do not permit scripting of Plug-ins within Netscape Navigator. However Sun and Netscape are working together to implement a new interface ("OJI") that will permit full scripting of Java Plug-in in future releases of Netscape Navigator.

It is dated from April 2001.
Does anybody knows if there is a solution now ?
