If you�re not using applets you don�t have to worry about it since the servlet runs on the server(where you need support for it) and sends only html to the client browser.

The whole point of the Java plugin is to allow the download and installation of a specific java environment on a user's computer - IF it isn't already installed there!

The server doesn't work that way - it's expected to already have all the Java classes it needs.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
