Tested OS/browser: XP-pro(sp2)/ IE 6
Tested build: jre 6u10-b08 (classic Plug-in and the next generation Java Plug-in-)
jre.exe nightly build (12/14/2007) from /java/deployment/....
Problem: Applet resources fail to load if using Plugin2. They are loaded fine using classic Java Plug-in on the same machine and tested configurations.
Steps to reproduce:
- Browse http://www.upnext.com
- Click 'Click Here to Enter Now"
If using plugin2, main applet page fails to load- In particular, livemap-54.jar and livemap.pack.gz (along with other required applet resources) fail to load. Switching to classic plugin, there is no loading issue at all.
Attached are two screnshots...

<jpi.bmp>: Used classic plugin
** Other observation:
- if using the plugin2 mode in promoted 6u10-b08, then there is no other way to close the applet browser except using Windows task manager to kill IE- However, if using nighly deployment build jre.exe (as of 12/14/2007), the applet browser can be closed by using browser closing X.
- Upnext Applet resources are loaded and saved on the client machine at:
<System-drive>\Documents and Settings\<user>\.upnext\...
