    Java isnt portable!


    I have wrote an applet, with a scrolling text in it.
    I have try it on the netscape and IE for windows platforms
    and feel good BUT the problem is when i have tried the
    applet on Apple and the result is: it works only on IE but not
    on the Netscape!!! WHY??? the java virtual machine tell me
    the method add of the container isnt valid...but it works on
    the pc and in ie for apple!!

    JAVA is portable?? or not...

    Its all depends on which version of JDK you are using. Actually java is protable
    but not all browsers are having same JVM. I guess all latest browsers are
    having JDK1.1 compatible JVMs. I am not sure about Mac but if you want to
    have same behaviour you can pretty well use Jdk plugins. http://www.javasoft.com/plugins
