Sub Tasks

Description
J2SE Version (please include all output from java -version flag):
Java Plug-in 1.6.0_16
Using JRE version 1.6.0_16-b01 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = D:\Documents and Settings\Administrator

Does this problem occur on J2SE 1.4.x or 5.0.x or 6.0?  Yes / No (pick one)
NO, it works fine with 6u13


Operating System Configuration Information (be specific):
Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180 service pack 2
OS: Windows XP service pack 2


Hardware: Intel CPU

 

Bug Description:
Applets having problem to load properly with latest versions of Java Plugin(6u14, 15 and 16). No problems with early versions of JDK 6.0 are being seen.


found that it has a problem with the proxy automatic configuration script.  If a specific proxy server is entered, there is no issue with that JRE. JRE 6 update 
13 and it did not have a problem with the proxy automatic configuration script.
Looks like something broke in the Sun JRE starting at version 6 update 14.

Attached are the logs.

This could be related due to fix for 

CR 6796470 Use new NPAPI entry points for cookie, proxy and browser authenticator access

Can customer provide us test case. 

Also can they try 6u14 b01, as putback for this bug was done in 6u14 b02.

Thanks.

I am adding Dennis to get some feedback

EVALUATION

It looks like an issue in JRE for parsing isInNet call:

point to my test proxy file in IE browser:
http://eltanin.east.sun.com:8000/dennis/bug/dolphin/6.0update/6887492/x.pac

Running the test applet in IE browser using JRE 6u18:
http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.5.0/demos/applets/MoleculeViewer/example1.html

You will noticed it using proxy:
wrong-proxy.east.sun.com:8080

Now install JRE 6u13 in your machine, running the same applet, you will noticed it using proxy:
correct-proxy.east.sun.com:8080

As it state in the bug report, it looks like this bug is introduced in JRE 6u14.
