Using the Java Plug-in

Popular web browsers, such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer, can be connected to the Java platform by using the Java Plug-in, under which applets are run, already installed. If you want to run applets under BEA JRockit JRE, you can install the Java Plug-in that ships with this product.

Available only on ia32 platforms, the BEA JRockit Java Plug-in extends the functionality of your web browser, allowing applets and Java beans to run with JRockit. The Java Plug-in is part of the BEA JRockit JRE and is installed when the JRE is installed on a computer. It works with Netscape, Mozilla, and Internet Explorer.
