Does Internet Explorer 5.5 support Swing components,
or am I required to do a JRE install on each client?
The PCs at my company are "locked down" and I don't want
to require a system administrator to install a bunch of JREs.
Thanks...

Hi Marvin,
IE never supported Swing and it never will. Every user must download the Java 2 pluggin from Sun. Your HTML can point them to it if you use the correct HTML tags. This should be allowed even though you PCs are locked down. The pluggin only allows a browser to support Swing. You will not have the JRE installed on your PC when you have downloaded the pluggin. That is another thing all together ...
Regards,
Manfred.

Thanks for the response, Manfred.
When I try to download the plugin to a "locked" machine, I get
a message that "ActiveX Controls" are not allowed.
So I go ahead and select "manual download for later installation". Then I get the full JRE.
So the JRE is not "another thing". It seems it is required on
systems that are "locked down". Am I correct?
