After kernel jre is installed, lauch SwingSet2 demo applet.  Here is the exceptionn from Java Console:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/javaws/Globals
   at sun.plugin2.applet.JNLP2Manager.initializeExecutionEnvironment(Unknown Source)
   at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain.handleMessageSetJVMID(Unknown Source)
   at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain.mainLoop(Unknown Source)
   at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain.run(Unknown Source)
   at sun.plugin2.main.client.PluginMain.main(Unknown Source)

Applet fails to load.

EVALUATION Adding javaws.jar into the core was the simplest way to fix this.
