Hi,
I am loading a applet when a JSP page is accessed. Am using codebase attribute to download jre 1.4.2 if its not installed on client machine or some older version is there. The download of jre is working fine on Windows system, but nothing happens when I access the JSP on Mac OSX machine. How can I download jre on Mac OSX, panther?
Regards,
Kapil

All versions of OS X are shipped with Java, so there shouldn't be a need to download the JDK. Older versions (up to 10.2, I think) shipped with 1.3, so if you require 1.4, users would have to download that. I don't think that process can be automated in the same way it can be on Windows. Mac browsers certainly don't do that automatically.

We are targetting for OSX 10.3.x. and it is shipped with JRE 1.4.1 by default. We need communication between javascript and applet and this feature java-javascript communication is not available in 1.4.1. Thats why I wanted to download JRE 1.4.2 using codebase tag
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
