Hi,

We have SSL client certificate(verisign) for browser IE6 (that supports JDK
1.1.4) to access applet with AWT based application. My IBM server supports
JDK1.3

Now we used Swing component in applet application, but IE6 browser does not
support it. So I plugged java 1.4.2_06 into IE6. When I try to access
applet with swing based application, I am getting the following error from
browser java console.

Then, I unplugged JDK1.4.2_06 and system is started working fine when I
plugged JDK 1.3.1_17.But requirement is to make the application run under
JDK1.4 plug-in

Is it JSSE compatible issue with JDK1.4(that bundled with JSSE)?

Is it possible to upgrade with JDK1.4 with existing certificate?

Please assist me how to overcome this situation.


thanks in advance.
