Java Plugin 1.6 hangs when loading applet
In firefox 2 and IE 7, the java console opens and then hangs the application. The console never prints its help message, and the application must be killed by the task manager (w32).
I can't direct the plugin to use a different VM. Other than uninstalling (reverting to 1.5), I can't get my applets to work.
In the beta release, the plugin would fail to load the applets, throwing an exception when trying to detect JDK version on the applet (no applet code had yet run); unfortunately I don't have a copy of that exception any longer. In the beta release prior to b2, the applets would fail to load for different reasons.
Everything works fine with appletviewer, whether pointed to a file or the release on sourceforge.
Are there ways to get debug/log output from the plugin prior to the JConsole being available (the lockup happens after JConsole is shown but before it prints its help message).
