I am trying to call javascript method in java(in my applet)
here i wrote the jsp page and i used
<jsp lugin> tag for applet. This is working fine with IE6.0 and Netscape4.6. but with the latest version of Netscape(6.2) i am getting the following exception
netscape.javascript.JSException: JSObject.getWindow() requires mayscript attribute on this Applet at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(Native Method) at Source)
at Method)at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation.ConstructObject(Unknown Source)
I am adding my applet code and jsp code.
In my applet there is button, by clicking the button it will calls the javascript method and closes the browser window.
Applet class:
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import netscape.javascript.JSObject;
import netscape.javascript.*;
import javax.swing.colorchooser.AbstractColorChooserPanel;

public class JSoTest extends JApplet implements ActionListener
JButton btn;
JPanel p1;
Color clr;
public JSoTest()
public void init()
btn=new JButton("Close");
p1=new JPanel();
this.getContentPane().setLayout(new BorderLayout());
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
JSObject obj=JSObject.getWindow(this);"close",null);
catch(Exception ex)

jsp page:

<body >
<jsp lugin type="applet" code="JSoTest.class" codebase="/examples/jsp/plugin/applet/"
width="200" height="150" name="Fractal">
<jsp arams>
<jsp aram name="MAYSCRIPT" value="true" />
</jsp arams>
<p>Unable to load java plugin</p>
</jsp lugin>

If i write the html file and with embed tag it is working fine.
