I am working on a project that uses applets to communicate with a server. In older browsers(Netscape 4.7 and lower) and jre131 when the applet talked to the server it used the SSL connection the the browser established. It seems that somewhere something has changed and now applets need to establish their own SSL connection. I don't know if this is a function of the jre or browsers? Does anyone have any information on this?
also If I have an applet that worked under the old way(using the browsers SSL connection) does it need to be re-written to make it work with the new way(establishing it own connection).
