Applet and JavaScript interaction in Safari

Hi Guys

I am developing an embedded Instant Messenger for my client's site. It seems to be crazy but I've done it on a PHP Mysql site using Applet and Javascript.

It really comes a long way to do it and it doesn't work very stably. I've been able to make it work in IE, FF and Opera; However, in Safari 4, I've experienced the following problem:

java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol:
at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation.checkLiveConnectCaller(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation.access$000(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation$2.run(Unknown Source)
at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation.CallMethod(Unknown Source)

It wasn't only me having this problem who uses Javascript and Java. I've searched the web and every site who teaches how to use JS + Java has this error message in Console. So I guess it's something wired only in Safari 4.

So far, I can only think, the problem is because the URL doesn't have a "http://" etc. as a protocol. "Javascript: " isn't a valid protocol that accepted by Java. Please let me know if I am wrong.

I need some help to guide me for this problem. Please.

Thanks

What is "the URL"? What is the code doing that is causing the exception?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
