This is a general question. I am too disappointed with java portability. I know there are some problems with different plataforms, but I have just observed applets work different in netscape and explorer on windows 95. Does anybody know any web site where we can be reported about these differences?

Your complaints are not so much about the portability of Java as it is on the different implementations of the Java Virtual Machine implemented in Netscape and Internet Explorer. The fact that a class file can be interpreted on different platforms addresses the "portability" of the language.

You should be comparing apples to apples where possible; Compare Netscape on a Mac with Netscape on Win95 running the same applet within an html document. Or perhaps use Sun's appletviewer on Win95 verses appletviewer on Solaris.

The language is evolving so that a Netscape implementation should look quite similar to an Internet Explorer implementation. It sounds as if your complaints should be directed to either Netscape or Microsoft for the moment. If you go to Sun's web site and download the Java Development Kit you will find the appletviewer bundled in with the other tools. Use the appletviewer as the standard by which other viewers are measured.
