Section 23.6. Conclusion

23.6. Conclusion

In this chapter, we covered some of the events that led to the current, fractured applet world and set the scene as it is. The Java Plug-in is currently your best option for running Java in the browser. New technologies such as Java Web Start are starting to provide alternatives for client-side deployment that may also be appealing. Although it is tempting to try to use minimalist Java 1.1 applets as a workaround for deployment issues, it's really a losing proposition. It's best to take control of the issue from the start and use the plug-in unless you have total control of the browser environment of your users.
