Hi Applet experts !
I would like to use an applet in my website.
This applet is written in Java 1.3.
To be sure it will work on each client machine (NS, IE , Mac), I want to download the Sun Java Plug-in automatically when the client accesses the HTML page.
Is it possible in a generic way for all the navigators (ie, ns, mac...) ?
If yes, is there a way to download the plug-in only if it does not already exist on the machine ? In other words, can I check the Java plug-in version of the client ?
Thanks for your help.

Bill,
Over in the Java in General (beginner) forum, we are having a conversation, called Exploring Java 2 Browser Support, in which we are trying to figure out the best solution to address this very problem.

Very interesting Dirk.
I'll try to have a further look at it soon to fully understand all your posts.
Thanks for the information

Is it possible to replace the Sun's URL where the plug-in is located by an internal URL ?
If yes, what are the files that have to be copied on our server ?

Ok, my previous post (intnal URL) was a stupid question.
Of course you can and it is documented here
All apologies... :roll:
