Here is something curious....
..Because our user base is the general population, JWS isn't really practical. It can be very clean, especially for in-house purposes, but for general population use dealing with users who don't have it is a much bigger pain than dealing with users who don't have the plugin.
.. We get millions of users for our applets a year and that would be too radical a change for now.What 'change'? See point 3 above.

We tried it. I thought I'd seen the light and then simple in-house testing was fraught with all sorts of peril and problems. People who have java 6 have JWS, but not everyone else.
..We are trying to move to java 6 for all, but until then its not an option. General users of the internet are stuck in 2004. You have to go with the least common denominator.In that case, make sure your app. is powered by fire.
