Description
If the new Java Plug-In is run and a JDK 7 build is named in deployment.properties, applets will fail to load with the following exception:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: sun.net.ProgressSource.getProgress()I
	at sun.plugin.util.ProgressMonitor.registerSource(ProgressMonitor.java:129)
	at sun.net.ProgressSource.beginTracking(ProgressSource.java:148)

	at sun.plugin2.applet.Applet2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Applet2Manager.java:845)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:675)

This is happening because ProgressSource.getProgress() was changed to return a long instead of an int in JDK 7 in 5052093. Since the new plug-in needs to run on multiple JRE versions, we need to change the code in sun.plugin.util.ProgressMonitor() to call ProgressSource.getProgress() and the ProgressEvent constructor reflectively, or find another solution.

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6620693.0/

EVALUATION Changed to access ProgressSource and ProgressEvent classes reflectively. This is necessary because the fix for 5052093 in JDK 7 changed signatures of some methods and constructors, and in the context of the new Java Plug-In this code must work on top of both JDK 7 and earlier releases. Tested by running Iris on new Java Plug-In on top of JDK 7 (to diagnose 6623943).
