Different versions on one PC

Hi:
We have quite a few web applications that require different versions of java plug-ins (aka, java runtime environments), and are having problems to have those different versions co-exist in a pc box. For example, say Application A requires jre1.2.2, and Application B requires jre1.3.1_02, when we get both versions of jre installed, we can run one, but not both. I am wondering what is the Sun's suggestion/workaround for this kind of problems - how to run multiple web applications that require different versions of java plug ins?

Here is a typical box we are using:
OS systems: Windows 2000/Windows NT
Browser: Internet Explorer 5.5

Thanks a lot! Let me know if you need more information.

    Additional information:
    The question is purely from a user's standpoint, not a developer's standpoint. We do not develop those applications, we are just users. In other words, we have no control on how the jsp page was written, those applications are black boxes to us. We want to figure out how to use those "black boxes" that require different versions of java plug-ins.
