Hi,

does anyone out there know if its possible to load 2 applets in a page the first running on the old (and yucky) standard MS VM bundled with ie and the second runnong on the latest Sun Java plugin?

I know this can be achieved in different browser windows, just not sure if they can happen on the same page simultaneously.

Thanks
Lloyd

p.s. the reason for this strange request is that a legacy applet running no MS VM already exists but we want to add a new applet on the new VM but change as little as possible for now.

Hi!

I think that it is possible to detect vm version, and make some ugly javascript to do your functionality.

try this (linux):
java -jar $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/htmlconvertter.jar -gui

try this (winloser):
java -jar %JAVA_HOME%/jre/lib/htmlconvertter.jar -gui

See that html what it generates, and try to modify it.

You can also find document with google about that htmlconvertter, there is some explanation what it do.

thanks,

yup I know how to use html converter and about the tags you put around your applet its just that that doesn't quite answer my question about whether you can have two VMs on the same page. I guess I should stop asking and try playing with the code.
