We have a web application that includes several applets that require the Sun Java 1.4 plugin. After deployment we have run into conflicts with other web based tools that our users use that require the Microsoft VM. The only way around this that we have found is to have the user enable and disable the Sun Java plugin depending on which web application they are using. Is there a better way around this to make the application smart enough to only look for the plugin it needs or to have both the Sun plugin and the Microsoft VM active at the same time?
Thanks for any help.

According to this page From the Java Plug-In guide, when IE hits the APPLET tag it uses the highest installed version of the Java Plug-In.
 
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
