Discoverer - alternative to browser Java plug-in

Could Discoverer run as Java Web Start similar to the possible development for E-Business Suite? Maybe not already - but at least theoretically - if it was developed in that direction?

Main challenge is the browsers where the option to activate Java plug-ins have been removed.

    Basically, No.  Discoverer Plus is tied to the Java Plug In.  Consider using Discoverer Viewer, which does not use the JRE and is executed entirely on the Server.

    I suspect the browsers that eliminate Java Plug-In, are not certified for use with Discoverer.  Review the certification matrix for supported browsers.

    Discoverer 11g is no longer under Premier support.  There will be no new releases / enhancements. So, at this point it is important to maintain a stable environment for as long as it takes to move to OBIEE or other Discoverer replacement.
