Java is not working on today's windows build (2000041909m16). I used a custom install and selected "Sun Java" to be sure. The above page does not load the applet on top right.
Summary: Java applets do not load → Java applets do not load
This must be related to mac java not working, no? I find it *highly* improbable that two individual java problems appeared on the same day on different platforms. I believe this is somewhere in the glue mozilla has to the jvms.
h'm, methinks this is different from bug 36381, where it actually *crashed* on Mac. here, the applets are simply not loading (winNT and linux).
Linux...I don't think java support is in there yet.
heh, that would explain it... :-)
Add nsbeta2 keyword
*** Bug 37077 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
adding myself to the cc list
Adding myself to cc. Under Windows98, Java install never completes. That is also part of the problem.
I'll re-assign this bug to Ed Burns, but he is away on other business until May 16. Under the circumstances, I'd say it's doubtful we'll be able to do anything about this for M16. If this turns out to be the result of yet another API change that came without notification, I'll be unhappy. If anybody out there can list exactly what changes were made between yesterday and today, that would be helpful to this bug's diagnosis (assuming that Java worked in yesterday's build).

Uh, a clarification on my last comment: by "yesterday" I meant "the day before this bug was filed, i.e., 4/18/2000," by "today" I meant "the day this bug was filed, i.e., 4/19/2000."
Moving nsbeta2 nomination from Status Summary to Keywords field. This is where the nomination belongs. NOT Status Summary...my query won't pick it up that way.
I did some search and found that there were some checkins done by Ed Burns on 04/18 around 14:58 to the '/mozilla/java/webclient/' directory related to bug 32011. Am not sure about whether these checkins made the difference or not but felt like this might help.
Latest update: I tried the following and applets run on today's windows (2000051108) 1. Install seamonkey without 'java' selected 2. Then manually installed just the 'jre131.exe' from the "xpi" folder 3. Note thatI did not install the jre patch file at all. 4. Loaded the java.sun.com page and could see applets load fine. Does this mean that we do not have to install the patch for the jre at all? As far as I know there was no notification for this. I can still see the patch file 'jre13patch.zip' in the xpi folder. Am not closing this bug since this needs details from edburns. Thnx. Am not closing this bug,

For those people using PR1, the patch is needed. When I tried shrir's suggestion, my Beta 1 Java stopped functioning. For those peopl e using both Beta 1 (for stability) and current builds on the same Windows system, it isnecessary to swicth between the patched version and the non-patched version. Right now, I just copy the patch files into the JRE's bin an dlib directories and use the npjava*.dlls from the patched version for Beta 1 and the non-ptached npjava*.dlls for current M16 builds. Ed made a number of checkins before he went on vacation. Is this the way he envisioned his changes to work? Or the fixes are not still complete?
We'll discuss this issue at tomorrow's (Tuesday's) OJI engineering meeting. If you're interested in calling in, please send email to email@example.com (that's me) and I can give you the dial-in number.
The changes I made, in the java/webclient directory, are not related to OJI in any way. The OJI people haven't made any checkins in a very long time, so I don't think it's us who broke this. I will investigate, but not until next Monday, 22 May 2000.

Agree that Java broken-->nsbeta2. Java on b2 list.
Note(Reminder): After this bug is fixed, will retest bug 27077(resolved/fixed for now) as part of verification process to catch any regressions.
Are there any improvements on the way regarding this bug? Today's build is still not getting applets to work.
Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix.
Tried this on bug 24487, it works. Marking worksforme.

I used the yesterday's win-installer version, still applet areas are coming up empty, and java console shows no indication that applets are loading. I used Beta1's java dlls to be sure. firstname.lastname@example.org, which build have you used to get java.sun.com to work?? and this bug is totally different from bug 24487. There is no crash involved here; applets just dont load up.
Dear Bora, Please See George Drapeau's 05/27/00 comments on bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32105 George explains why you can't get access to a working java plugin right now.
Verified that this is working with today's windows build again (with the new installer and patch for jre checked-in). Build used: 2000053108
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
