Macintosh Runtime For Java MRJ 2.2.2 and above support	integration with a 
browser's networking stack.

This gives Java applets access to:

* the browser's cache, for JAR files and other resources like images and sound
* the browser's security layer to support HTTPS and browser certificates
* the browser's cookies, so applets can send the right cookies when doing 
networking

We should support this kind of integration between Mozilla and MRJ

Patrick, I was going to try to help on the POST bug (bug #67751, bug #62810, bug
#57491), but find no documentation on the JMURLxxx routines or JManager 2.2 at
Apple, on the seed site, on my dev CD's.  How DID you create JMURLConnection.h?
 I found the routines the JManager2 fragment of MRJLib, but that doesn't get me far.

Terry, any status on this?

I feel I must reiterate our serious concern with this lack of functionality. Our 
product, which is actually a toolkit used by many applications in the 
Applications 11i suite, relies heavily on the basic ability to post a URL 
from Java with arguments and retrieve its return data. Without this ability, our 
toolkit, and therefore a host of Oracle applications, cannot be supported.

Surely, there may be some work to support this feature, but it is an essential 
means of allowing communication between client and server.

Please consider addressing this problem in the very near future.  Thanks for 
your advance attention to this issue.

Incidentally, I understand this does not apply so much on OS X where all browsers 
use MRJs own networking stack for SSL (this is made possible by the changes in US 
crypto lawas that allowed Sun to integrate SSL into the JDK).

That said, there could be definate benefits from integrating some other features 
(cache, cookies) on all OSes.

Setting OS=Mac OS X since that's the only meaningful Mac OS for Mozilla now
(unless Mozzers plan to update the classic plug-in).
OS: All → MacOS X
Is any of this still relevant for the JEP?
