I've developped an applet using JDK1.2
Unfortunately when client want to see the applet, they have to download the java plugin.
So, I will develop the applet using JDK1.1.x... so no more plugin is needed!
( Moreover, the plug-in is not available for MAC )
My question is : Are there some tools, packages,... to help?
Thanks in advance

To help with WHAT - you can get an IDE like JBuilder or whatever to help, but somehow I don't think that is what you are asking.

You can still download the Java 1.1 SDK from sun... anything developed with this is going to be 1.1 compatible. Actually, I would develop with 1.3 ( or the new 1.4 ) and just test it with a browser without the Java plugin installed to make sure that it works... the majority of things to steer clear of if you want to be 1.1 compatible are Swing, Java2D, and the Collections classes ( stick to using Hashtable and Vector only ). There are a few other things, such as new methods introduced after 1.1, but these are usually pretty easy to fix, and you can check in the API to see when methods and classes were introduced.
