Does anyone know how to get access to the class sun.plugin.panel.ConfigurationInfo from within Java code? My code will not compile when I try to instantiate this class. Any ideas?

Whenever you use a class that is not in the API, you need to add that class or a jar containing it to the classpath. You can peek into a jar using Winzip or jar -t <jarfile>. You will probably find this class in a jar among the plugin files.

I put the jaws.jar file in a directory that all of my extensions are in which is in the CLASSPATH, and I am still getting an error. Specifically:
package sun.plugin.panel does not exist

Has anyone ever tried this or know of any workarounds or issues that I should be aware of? Thanks for your help.

I am not sure why it would not work. Are you sure that the .class you mentioned is in jaws.jar? what version of JDK/JRE are you using? In JDK/JRE 1.4.x the ConfigurationInfo.class is in plugin.jar
I agree. Here's the link:
