We do not have an automated way to test these yet, but we do have a list of applets that would be worth using in testing. See: http://wiki.mozilla.org/MozillaQualityAssurance:Test_JavaApplets This page has a list of URLs with applets we could use.
Created attachment 255843 [details] paint applet http://anfyteam.com/anj/anfypaint/anfypaint.html
Here's another site I sometimes test with, that makes very sophisticated use of a Java applet. To see the applet you need to do a search and click on the "Map View" tab. http://grokker.com/
This is great. We will have to mark which of these would be relocatable. In other words, with some of these, we would be able to download the files and use them for testing locally. For some of these, such as the banking sites, we will not want to try this. But it is good to know about all of these. Thanx.
You're quite welcome. I'm glad Mozilla.org is trying to formalize its Java applet testing. I understand why it isn't feasible to relocate the banking sites. But you'll need to be careful not to test them too much at any one time -- otherwise the sites' owners might think they're under attack :-)
I test with the applet on this page (uses "object" tag) http://ww2.cs.fsu.edu/~steele/XHTML/appletObject.html
Everything left in Core:Testing is going to Testing:General. Filter on CleanOutCoreTesting to ignore.
Here's an updated list of the Java applet sites I routinely test with. I've dropped links for sites that've disappeared, updated links that've changed, and added a couple new links. http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml http://browserspy.dk/java.php http://www.weather.gov/radar_tab.php (click on map and choose "loop") http://www.jigzone.com/ http://www.lohn1.de/lobn.htm http://jmol.sourceforge.net/demo/ http://securitywizardry.com/radar.htm http://brittnysseafood.com/ http://www.map24.com/ http://www.sferyx.com/htmleditorapplet/download.htm http://www.sferyx.com/htmleditorapplet/demo/htmleditordemo.php http://www.sferyx.com/htmleditorapplet/demo/htmleditordemowindow.htm http://www.prophet.net/analyze/javacharts.jsp?symbol=AAPL http://navsurf.com/applets/colorpicker/ http://legacy.xrce.xerox.com/competencies/content-analysis/arabic/input/keyboard_input.html http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/index.htm?info/apis/chmod.htm http://poslfit.homeip.net/test/liveconnecttest.html (best I've ever seen) http://information.overlaid.com/stable/weasel/installation/java.html (also LiveConnect) As best I can tell, all but one of the bank sites from comment #3 have stopped using Java. But sometimes banking services aren't available on weekends, so I really need to recheck on Monday. I'll do that and post another comment.

I'll > do that and post another comment. I've confirmed this. Only the following (of the three bank sites) still uses Java: https://uniservices3.uobgroup.com/CLO/Pub_ControllerServlet?cmd=customerlogin&action=clologin Also, since comment #10 the http://www.prophet.net/ site has been shut down, so the following link no longer works: http://www.prophet.net/analyze/javacharts.jsp?symbol=AAPL The http://www.sferyx.com/ pages have similar functionality. And here's another stock charts site that's still available (one that uses Java applets): http://www.boursorama.com/graphiques/graphique_histo.phtml?symbole=INTC&applet=1
There may be resources in the OpenJDK project that can be used for this effort.
> http://www.weather.gov/radar_tab.php (click on map and choose "loop") This page no longer uses Java :-( But there's at least one NOAA page that still uses Java to dynamically loop weather maps: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl/pages/sat_Hawaiiir.php
The HTML <applet> element and related java functionality was removed from Gecko in Bug 1279218. Marking related bugs as invalid.
