Hi,

I am facing an issue java with internet explorer.

In control pannel win - 7 when I open java in control panel in advanced, Default Java browsers, Microsoft internet explore is ticked and grayed out, and I am not able to check / uncheck that box. And internet explorer - tools - options - advanced - Java portion is not coming.

I tried lot, uninstalling java, and re-instaling, even I tried un-installeing internet explorer and re-insall etc. Java is not registering in internet explorer.


I tried both for 32 bit and 64 bit both java and internet explorer.

OS is WIN-7 64 bit Laptop.

Could any body help.

Anil Kumar.

Mine is the same way but it works fine. I think this is expected behavior. What makes you think it's a problem? For instance, are you getting errors when trying to run Java applets in IE?

Some Java related applications developed in JSP not opening.

I asked developers they said, if Java part is coming in internet explorer - tools - advanced options, then application will run. how to get that part I am suffering since 4 days.

JSP doesn't have anything to do with Java installed on the client side. When you say it's not opening, what exactly do you mean? What URL are you using and what exact error/exception are you seeing? What server are you using to deploy the JSP application?

I think they were used oc4j container.

They were build a web application developed in java. When running that application, some security related errors are coming.

No, it's not correct. Like I said, accessing JSPs doesn't require client side Java in your browser.

OK. But client side JRE must be enabled/installed to run java applications ?

And that JRE must linked to IE.

Client-side Java has nothing to do with JSP-based Java web applications. You don't even need the JRE installed on the client to run a JSP application. The Java web app uses a JVM on the server and doesn't send anything to the client except plain HTML. You need to give us more specifics about the error you are seeing and forget about the JRE on the client. It's not part of the issue.
