Applets + JRE 1.6.0_06 + IE 7 + Ajax = Problem
I have a strange issue in front of me, and I don't know why it would be happening.
My problem is as follows:
Whenever I try to load an applet (any applet), through an Ajax update call on IE 7 with JRE 1.6.0_06 installed, I get a NullPointerException before the applet is loaded.
I get this NPE only with this special combination -> JRE 1.6.0_06 + IE 7 + Ajax call.
I don't face any issues if I do not use Ajax, i.e., if I load the applet using plain simple static HTML it works fine, but, when I use an ajax call to load the applet into a DIV tag I get a null pointer exception.
Does anyone have an idea as to why this may be happening? Could you please suggest some work around so that I get rid of the NPE.
