i have created an applet and it is not running on client machines where JRE is not installed...Is there any way to detect whether JRE is installed on a client machine or not....???
or is it possible to run applets on clients where JRE is not installed..??

Akash.

You do need a JRE to run applets. If there is none, you can specify alternate HTML to be displayed instead. I suppose that could include JavaScript to redirect to a page for users that don't have an JRE.

Using the OBJECT and EMBED tags it's also possible to specify that a user should be asked whether he wants to download a JRE if he doesn't have one. The Plugin Developers Guide has details on how to do that.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
