i have a problem. i have created an applet code which requires a set of permissions. In my machine i have a jdk1.4 installed. so its working perfectly. now when i run my applet in a client machine which does not have jdk or jre installed, its not working. a friend says,because i dont have jre installed in the client machine , and also bcoz the java.policy file which has a set of permissions will not be available, its not possible to run the applet html file.
my question is how to install jre 1.4 plugin in the client machine and also load my java.policy file.that is when i call my html file which has the applet is loaded it should automatically load the java.policy file and that file should be read by the IE browser.
also i found out that if we dont have macromedia flash in a machine the browser asks for the client to download the flash plugin. in the same way i want a jre 1.4 plugin and also the java.policy file to be downloaded in the client machine
any help is appreciated.

If you get your html page containing the applet to request the Java plug-in, the client will have a working JRE, at least for applets.

To request the plug-in, you want to use the html converter page.
