Moreover, trying to run http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp it fails. It doesn't detect Java neither. It seems that there is a problem with Java Browser PluginThe outcome for me was (on Win7+JRE7u13+Firefox17), Oracle's Ensemble sample was accessible from the web . . . your mileage may vary . . .
The major browser vendors have blocked earlier versions of Java. In my case - windows 7 + jreu11 + firefox - I got spinning blue dots of doom instead of an applet being launched. The blue dots just sit there and spin forever while nothing happens. This occurred for both the Java installation check and the Ensemble sample applet.
I installed the latest jre offered me from http://java.com, which was java 7u13. When doing this please, remember to uncheck the incredibly stupid default option of also installing the ASK toolbar which is a nasty piece of software.
Then going back to the java.com installation check page, I get a pop-up that an unsigned applet wants to run (check that it doesn't display behind your browser window). This unsigned applet prompt is displayed by default for JREs newer than jre7u11 in order to combat drive by download attacks using unsigned java applets exploiting security holes in the java runtime. I accepted the warning pop-up and the system was able to detect the Java version: "You have the recommended Java installed (Version 7 Update 13)."
Then I went back to the Ensemble sample page: http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/products/javafx/2.2/samples/Ensemble/index.html#SAMPLES - this time (after accepting the strange Signed by UNKNOWN dialog), Ensemble launched instead of displaying never ending spinning blue dots.
Nice to know this.
I've just tried latest CentOS 6.3 + Firefox 18.0.1 / latest Chrome + jre7u13/jdk7u13, but it was not detected.
I've even followed all this info, hoping that it will help with the browser plugin:
What am I missing?
Moreover, trying to run http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp it fails. It doesn't detect Java neither.This worked for me (Mac OS X 10.8+Safari 6.0.2+jre7u13).
Ensemble (http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/products/javafx/2.2/samples/Ensemble/index.html#SAMPLES) also worked under the same configuration.
I've finally made it work Linux and FF 18.
There's a mistake in the following instructions:
They write ff/plugins and ff/plugin (a little bit down than the first one).
So, if you don't pay attention, you may end up creating a folder "plugin", not "plugins", so it won't work.
I'll get my hands on my customer's Macs tomorrow.
I've got access to my customer's Mac machines.
My apologize. They had 7u12 on their Macs.
Happily enough, it seems that Oracle managed to get JFX working in browser with 7u13.
Regarding Linux, I got it work, but don't forget about "firefox/plugins" and "firefox/plugin" (the latest is wrong). Oracle should update this error from their description available at: http://java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml#enable
Thank you jsmith for providing feedback.
