I have used java in the past, but not enough to be as proficient as I'd like to be. I have purchased the OCA and OCP study guides from Scott and Jeanne to help me step up my game.
That being said, I have just installed the SE 8 JDK (version 1.8.0_74) 64 bit on Windows 7, waiting for the study guides to arrive.
When I try to run either the Animator or Bar Chart example htmls from the demos.zip file, I get the following error:
alt="Your browser understands the <APPLET> tag but isn't running the applet, for some reason." Your browser is completely ignoring the <APPLET> tag!
I get this error whether I try to run it in Internet Explorer or Firefox - both are the latest versions.
Any ideas as to what the problem/solution is?
This is probably a real basic question, but I could use any help you could offer.
However: you'll notice that Chrome doesn't support applets any more. I've heard that other browsers may follow suit, but that hasn't happened yet. That's because basically applets are a dead technology because of their security failures. So if you can't get applets to run I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Just move on to the next example.

Thanks for the link, Paul.
The part that talks about Firefox: I cannot find the plug-in the link mentions "Java (TM) Platform". I looked through all 190+ entries and it was not there. Also, I may have misspoke, my Firefox version is 44.0.2 - unsure if that is the latest for Win 7.
The part that talks about Internet Explorer: I followed the instructions and "allow scripting of Java applets" was already enabled (no changes made).
And I verified that "Enable Java content in the browser" is checked in the Java Control Panel.
So, following the instructions from the link you provided did not yield anything. I still cannot run the demos I mentioned.

I have listed the error and the computing environment that I am using while starting OCA training. Please help resolve this issue.
