Applet is not Working


This section describes you some of the trouble shooting when your applet is not working in the browser

Are you running Mac OS 9?

Firstly check which browser are you using. If you are using Netscape 4.0(or less) with MacOS then try to run the applet applet on Internet Explorer or on different Operating system like Linux.

What version browser do you have?

Check the version of your browser by clicking on the ?Help? menu and then select the ?About?. And make you using at least version 5.0 (Netscape / IE).

Is your browser set to run Java?

If above things are ok then may be your browser does not configure to run java.

  • If you are using Netscape, then click the menu ?Edit? and the ?Preferences?. It shows a screen with different categories. Click on ?Advanced? and make sure the ?Enabled Java? box is checked.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer, click on Menu ?Tools? and then select the ?Internet Options? then click on the ?Security? tab. Then click on the ?Custom Level? Button, it shows you a security settings list. You have to scroll down this list until you find ?Java : Java Permissions?. Make sure about the java is not disabled and the security is not very high.
  • If you are using Safari, then in the Safari Menu select the ?Preferences?, then click on the Security tab. Make sure that Enabled Java box is checked 
  • In the latest versions of Opera and FireFox they do not include Java by default. You have to install it.

Does your browser support java 1.3?

Now Internet Explorer 6.0 on Windows XP is also comes without Java support or with the old Java support like Java 1.1. To fix this problem you have to install the browser plugin from the Sun's website.
