Hi,

We have a web application that uses applets in one of it's pages.To be more specific the applets are being used for Guages that displays the number of orders processed.

Previously we used to have the 1.5 version of JRE and we have not seen any issues so far.

Recently we have upgraded the JRE to 1.6 and the issues started there after.Now the problem is we are not able to view the applets completely.After partial loading of the applet the applet started flickering and we are not able to view it completely.

I just installed the JRE 1.6 and rest of the configurations of the browser were kept untouched.

What might be the problem? Does the JRE 1.6 doesn't supports applet? or the problem might because of some other reasons.

Kindly let me know your suggestions in order to trouble shoot this issue.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Maneesh,

This is a production application which has been running from years.

The only change was the upgrading the JRE to 1.6 on a client machine.

What stack trace do you want then?

I just tried uninstalling the JRE 1.6 and could see the applet running fine on IE with out any issues.

We are a big team and all the guys who are using 1.6 are only facing this issue.

I have never tried running applets on 1.6 and not sure to what extent it supports the applets.

let me know if you need any further details.

As far as I know, the 1.6 still "supports" applets.

Yes, Java 6 supports applets just like Java 5. So if you have a problem, you are going to have to identify what the problem is and deal with it.
