Here's one for the authors, as well as others on this forum. How have you solved the problem of needing a certain JRE (say, 1.4.2_08) for your applet to run, yet your users may already have another 1.4.2 runtime on their machine (say 1.4.2_06). Assume that the users aren't technically savvy. I know that you can specify this using CLSID when declaring your applet in either a JSP or HTML file, but I'm looking for some good advice on how this problem was solved in real world situations.

Thanks!

Lanny,

Well, you've certainly stumped me with that one: I am not an expert on deployment. Perhaps my brother will have better luck with it.

Regards,

Josh

I've heard that Java Web Start http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/ can do this for you, but I don't know the details.
