Java Plug-in Technology

Java Plug-in technology, included as part of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (Java SE), establishes a connection between popular browsers and the Java platform. This connection enables applets on Web sites to be run within a browser on the desktop.
Where Do You Get Java Plug-in?
Java Plug-in technology is part of the current version of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (Java SE). Download the JRE.
Java Plug-in Demonstration Applets
We have demonstration pages that test Java SE applets -- see Code Samples and Apps.
Deploying JavaBeans Components
The JavaBeans Bridge for ActiveX technology is part of Java Plug-in technology and bundled with the JRE. It provides developers of legacy OLE/COM/ActiveX containers such as Word or Visual Basic with the ability to embed and use portable JavaBeans components in the same way they would previously embed and use platform-specific OLE/COM/ActiveX components.
Java Upgrade Program
Now is the time to upgrade to Sun's official JRE. Help yourself and your customers and realize immediate benefits through the richer, broader applications, and applets you develop.
