Java applet issuesAn applet is a program written in the Java™ programming language that can be included in an HTML page, much in the same way an image is included. When you use a Java technology-enabled browser to view a page that contains an applet, the applet's code is transferred to your system and executed by the browser's Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
Problems arise when
With Mozilla Firefox, if you have problems installing Java plugin, you can do so mannualy: After install JRE, copy
java/jreXXX/bin/NPxxx.dll to Mozilla FireFox/plugins/ These files are like: NPJava11.dll NPJava12.dll NPJava13.dll NPJava14.dll NPJava32.dll NPJPI150_04.dll NPOJI610.dllIt is recommeneded to install the lastest update of JRE.
Applets run within a ``sandbox''. This is a security model that severely restricts the capabilities of applets to access the local system. Excluded are means of reading from or writing to the local disk, or forking arbitrary local processes. There also might be a firewall probelm. If you run into such a security problem, however, it is an issue more of the applet itself, you should contact the author.
