Subject Re: Running Java Apps From The Browser
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 08:49:00 GMT
A lot of guys asking me how to get java to automatically install if client does not have JRE.

This is not an all platform solution unfortunately, but nevertheless it works for IE users.
Place this is your web page

<OBJECT codebase=""

classid="clsid:5852F5ED-8BF4-11D4-A245-0080C6F74284" height=25 width=27 id="Test" border="1">

<param name="back" value="false"><!-- Alternate non IE type HTML browsers which cannot
instantiate the object --> 

<a href=""> Download Java Runtime</a>


If user does not have JRE, it gets it and installs it, then the links to applications will
Maybe someone knows of a better way.... I dont.

  Hi Teh Noranis Mohd Aris,

  Hope you read this.
  I remember you having problems with Applets, namely trying to get around security issues.

  Just want to tell you I made IGNITION, which you can get at

  You drop your applications into a folder on the servlet.... point a browser link at it....
it runs on user machine, with no security limitations.
  Normal applications work, doesnt have to be an applet or a web start special.

  I had a look at other technologies, and realized your problem is also a real need. 
  So the mighty Tomcat again came to the rescue....  hope you and other guys find ignition
  Its nice to be able to start java apps from a browser.... easily.
