With IE you can use something like this:

<object id="SerialApplet" height="0" width="0"
<param name="name" value="SerialApplet"/>
<param name="code" value="de.ixware.medpack.cardpack.SerialApplet" />
<param name="codebase" value="http://pc11:8080/MedDok/applets"/>
<param name="scriptable" value="true"/>

All the classes you want to use can then be "unjared" to the path given by
the codebase parameter. The scriptable parameter only says, that public
methods of the applet can be accessed using javascript.
For a more detailed description on using the java plugin look at


Under http://www.java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3/docs/tags.html you'll find
ways of implementing applets cross-browser compatible.

Hope this helps a bit.
