Force Microsoft Java Machine
Posted on 2002-06-27
Hi, we just made a java applet that should run on IE with the microsoft virtual java machine.
The problem is that some clients can have a sun jvm, and in this case, the sun jvm takes precedence for all java execution.
I would like to have a method that would
a) allow me to detect which jvm is running,
b) allow me to run the MS virtual machines (when I want) without asking the user to uncheck his preferences
c) I also would like to know what risk I am taking if I allow some applets (or programs) to be running with the sun jvm, and at the same time my applet to be running with the ms jvm
