We need to include an Applet in our JSP page.

I have following queries regarding Applet

(1)We are developing application for users with IE 5 or higher. We are assuming we have only default JRE that comes with IE. What version of JDK does this JRE supports?
(2)Will applet downloaded every time or only for the first time?

Don't think IE comes with a JRE any more, originally the MS VM was outlawed by Sun as an illegal copyright (or something like that...). So a user has to get a JRE, however, the MS VM that was in the build upto IE4 or IE5 (I think...) supports Java 1.1 only - best to do a version check when you run the applet

The applet is usually cached by the JRE. so the short answer is only the first time.
so be aware. let's say you are developing/testing the applet remember to close IE between test since it won't download the new one.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
