Switch to specified version's java browser plugin installed
I write a java applet and want to confirm the compatibility on all major java platform(1.4,1.5,1.6). In order to do that, I must test 1.6 platform and remove my 1.6 jre, then the current jre which browsers are using become 1.5(For I installed 1.5 before, remove 1.6, 1.5 bowser plugin will take over automatically), I test 1.5, remove it, then 1.4. It will take a long time, JRE's installing and removing process usually takes me three minites or so, and that is a dull work though. Especially when I heard from someone that something went wrong on an explicit version, and I can not switch to this version at once. The worst situation is the version happened to be 1.4, so I must remove twice.
I did some homework before posting here. Something related in the page below:
Under the subtitle "Java Applet Runtime Settings"
But that trick doesn't work on jre 1.6.
I want something like a tool that list all version's browser plugin installed in my system, offer developer a chance to switch to a specified one at once. That seems to be a functionality which JavaConsolePanel fails to offer.
Has anybody encountered that kind of problem before? Can you give me a hint to work through it? I even find and replace all strings like "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_02\bin\npjpi160_02.dll" in my windowsXP's registry, and that does nothing good.
Any help will be appreciated.
