Description
install FX 2.0.3 and JRE 7u4, try to load FX applet in browser, it will fail with signature mistach in PluginWindowFactory.createWindow

Comments
EVALUATION Problem: If system has FX 2.0.3 and JRE 7u4 -> you cannot load any FX browser applet due to the following excetion: java.lang.AbstractMethodError: com.sun.deploy.uitoolkit.PluginWindowFactory.createWindow(JLjava/lang/String;ZLsun/plugin2/main/client/ModalityInterface;Lsun/plugin2/message/Pipe;I)Lcom/sun/deploy/uitoolkit/Window; at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain$AppletFrameCreator.run(Unknown Source) at com.sun.deploy.uitoolkit.impl.fx.ui.FXAppContext.invokeLater(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain$2.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) PluginMain: could not create embedded frame This is because we changed PluginWindowFactory.createWindow signature in 7u4/FX2u1, to implement our own MacOS plugin. This is a valid use case because we ship JRE 7u4 runtime offline installer standalone (no co-install of FX). Only JRE online installer has FX co-install. So, for example, if people has 7u3 + FX2u3, and they manually install 7u4 runtime offline installer only, they will run into this problem (7u4 + FX 2u3). For the similar case of 7u3 + FX 2u2 - it works. Fix: The argument involved in the signature change is MacOS specific. For windows, it uses default value in both old (0 - long type) and new (null - String type) case. We detect if we got the null argument and the AbstractMethodError, and if so, re-try to call into the old method signature with 0 as argument. No change in FX runtime is needed. Test: Make sure FX applet can be loaded in browser with 7u4, using either 2.0.3 or 2.1 FX runtime.
