Java should support the Active-X Bridge and bean packager technologies.
Originally, the Java Plug-in was based on this support. However, this is
no longer true in 1.4. The bridge support was removed to allow development

growing and we should consider re-implementing the support on a 1.4 codebase
and more fully supporting it.
