Installing extensions in a user folder (not in a system folder) - possible?

I suppose this is an old question, but I have not been able to find any answer in the forums (probably I used the wrong search terms).

If this is the wrong forum to post this topic to, please suggest me a better one.

Question: in the context of using the Java Plug-In, is it possible to install Java extensions in a user folder, rather than in the default location <javahome>/lib/ext ?

The background of the question should be clear: installing extensions to the usual location requires running the browser "As Administrator" under Windows Vista and beyond.

TIA to all volunteers,
