There's an app o' mine that is bundled in a jar file. It's an Applet, but that doesn't matter. What really matters is: the jar file uses an extension. An extension from Sun. To use that and install it automatically in the client machine I have to put that extension in the MANIFEST file for my app, like the code that follows:
So! The question that is reeeeally bothering me is: "is there a way to set that my app uses an extension from outside the MANIFEST file, say, from my code? If yes, how? If no, is there any auto-checking-and-installing solution for my problem?"
