13.4. Including Applets for the Java Plug-In

Early in the evolution of the Java programming language, the main application area was applets (Java programs embedded in Web pages and executed by Web browsers). Furthermore, most browsers supported the most up-to-date Java version. Now, however, applets are a very small part of the Java world, and the only major browser that supports the Java 2 platform (i.e., JDK 1.2–1.4) is Netscape 6 and later. This leaves applet developers with three choices:

  • Develop the applets with JDK 1.1 or even 1.02 (to support really old browsers).

  • Have users install version 1.4 of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), then use JDK 1.4 for the applets.

  • Have users install any version of the Java 2 Plug-in, then use Java 2 for the applets.
