    Is plugin.jar included by the jre intall process

    digitalrinaldo
      Is plugin.jar included with an install of the JRE? Do I need to bundle a version plugin.jar with my browser based application?

      Is there a version in the manifest file to identity which plugin.jar

      If I have to include it each time, I would like to download it from a maven repository. Does anyone know of a maven repository that allows you to find plugin.jar based on the version of the JRE.

      If you load a plugin.jar that is not compatible with the current JRE shouldn't it raise an exception?

          yes

          No

          No. Applets and Webstart application will always use latest version of plugin.jar available on the system.

          If your application has dependency on the minimum version of JRE then consider specifying this in the JNLP file for your application/applet using j2se tag.
