We want to use a Java Applet that only runs with the 1.3.1 JVM (no upward compatibility, I didn't test alder jdk's). I know that somewhere on the web there is an applet that detects which jvm a browser is using. Does anyone know the url?
I know you can also detect the plugin version in the browser settings, or in the windows settings, or if necessary using regedit, but our customers have very limited capabilities on their workstations so they cannot use that. Also, I know how to write an applet that does it for me, but installing the applet somewhere where the customers can access it is a bureaucratic (is this english?) problem. So I really need the url and nothing else!
