we have developed JavaScript solutions for common deployment problems (see CR 6500417). 

a lot can be done with just JavaScript, but some significant things can NOT be done.

examples would be detecting update installed JRE versions, or detecting the running JRE (in
the browser).

so, we are proposing the development of browser plugins (an ActiveX object for IE, an NPAPI+ plugin
for Firefox) to augment what can be done using just pure JavaScript.

EVALUATION The fix for this (uncverified) was delivered into JDK7 b64 as part of: 6797688: Umbrella: Merge all JDK 6u4 - 6u12 deployment code into JDK7
