We have a Java applet on a web page. On Internet Explorer, the full package name of the applet is shown on the status bar of the browser. For example "Applet com.xyz.MyApplet started". Is it possible to remove this sentence from the status bar? Our client does not want to see the company name ("xyz" in this case) being shown on the status bar. Removing the package of the Applet class does not seem like a good idea to us.
