Lifecycle methods in new Plugin
According to the release notes (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/ea/6u10/plugin2/index.jsp), one of the features of the new plugin is "improved applet lifecycle management":
"Calls to the applet lifecycle methods init, start, stop, and destroy are more deterministic and cross-browser behavior has been improved. The applet class loader cache and the legacy applet lifecycle, required for backward compatibility, are fully supported and the behavior of both has been improved."
Where can I find more information about this? Specifically, what is the expected behavior of the lifecycle methods running under the new plugin?
