Native libraries and applets ?
Is there a plan to include native library support into applets ?
Some projects like JOGL on java.net would certainly benefit from inclusion into browser as an applet.
There is currently a 'dirty' workaround : using an installer applet to copy proper dlls into java.libray.path on the client, but it doesn't work on all platforms (I've read Mac OS protects that path) and may overlap with other applications requiring other versions of the same .dll / .so
The other workaround is... to use Java Web Start, but it is not suited for everyone's needs.
