Can someone confirm or clarify whether or not it is required to obtain the specific "WebSphere Application Server Client" Java Plug-in Control Panel in order to use client side EJBs in an Applet?
Is it possible to package up nesc jars and libs to send along with an applet archive in order two allow support for a variety of client Java Plug-in verions?
Or does the WebSphere J2EE support stack have to be installed on client machine ahead of time? Is there such a thing as a truly thin client stack that can be added to an existing application to augment it to allow use of EJBs?

There are two parts to the answer of this question:
1) Yes, you need to install the WebSphere Application Client CD in order to get a J2EE context on the client 2) You don't have to install the full client, there is an option to assemble a "Pluggable" configuration where you setup any arbitrary Java Plugin with the J2EE context that is on the WebSphere Application Client CD.
