    Can I make applets work without the Java Plug-in ?

    Hello,

    I'm new to Java, and I published an applet to the web.
    http://www.members.shaw.ca/Spectator/myExample.html

    If you click the button, the text box will display "The Scorpion King"

    It's nothing fancy, but it only works for me and 2 other people. Why ? The 3 of us have the Java Plug-In enabled for our browsers. 6 other people I talked to said all they see is a grey box and a message saying something like "load: class not found" (can't remember exactly).

    I searched Microsoft's website and found that MS tried not supporting Sun's Java applets, but then they got sued for it, and now they have to support Sun's applets, and they are also going to phase out their own VM and replace it with Sun's.

    For people who don't have the Java Plug-in, is there anything I can do to make the applet work for them ? MS is supposed to include the Sun VM in a service pack, but that might take a while.

    Thank you,
    Spectator

    not sure exactley what you are asking, but i know you can download a plugin (virtual machine) directley from sun.......as for making applets work with no interpretor at all, i don't think so, but i may be wrong....

    hope this helps

    If I don't use Sun's VM and go to a website that has an applet, why does the applet run on my computer ?

    i'm not totaly sure, but i think internet explorer's VM and JIT compiler will allow the applets to work........
