Agreed - just spent an hour or so figuring out what was heppening on 
a RHEW3 install.

Come on guys - this is an enterprise workstation.  It should have 
java working in the browser out of the box!

Best regards,

Paul Mitcheson

RFE logged as internal bug #109791 - will consider for future releases.
Comment 3 nathan r. hruby 2004-03-24 09:50:55 EST
Further, maybe just fixing the plugin would be a nice touch :)
From the IBMJava2-JRE Changelog:

--- SNIP
<timp@redhat.com> 1:1.4.1-6:
- comment out the plugins from the files list since they don't work

Thomas Fitzsimmons <fitzsim@redhat.com> 1:1.4.1-7:
- remove plugin lines altogether

This seems to work now with the errata IBM releases. Closing. -Ali
