EVALUATION

We are targeting to support this feature in JRE 6u12, we will support Java Plugin/Java webstart on AMD64 arch on both Window and Linux platform.

On linux, we will support Java plugin only on Firefox 3 64bit browser, due to 64bit Firefox is not available on Solaris OS yet, we won't support 64bit Java plugin and Java webstart on Solaris platform at this moment.
