Java games rock!


« Posted 2005-01-07 20:04:52 »

Sorry but I figure you guys have to have solved an issue that I am facing.....


My company e-commerce site is finnally to a point that we want to force our IE customers to use a JVM that is newer than 1.1.8.    

We want something that will painlessly and unobtruesively download and install a java plugin in to thier web browser.

I have heard some rumors that webstart will enable a customers to update the jvm that thier browser uses.

Thanks to anyone whom can shed light on the subject

Not quite as easily as it looks. Step 1: make a 1.1.8 compatible applet that will check the VM version and if it's unsuitable, redirect users to a page explaining why not, with a direct link to Sun's installer.

Step 2: if VM is correct version, launch Webstart by opening a .jnlp document.

With an applet, you can specify which version of Java it requres in the applet tag. You can replace the applet tag with a tag that calls the java-plugin if you prefer, this gives you a bit more power and flexability.

Check out these links on the Sun site for migrating from MSJVM to SunJVM and how to use the plugin to load a newer version of Java onto a clients PC.

Hope this helps,
