How can I use a Java3D applet in a browser?

I've created a java3D applet in my my SDK (Eclipse) and when I run the applet in Eclipse it works.

But when I use it as a applet in my browser (IE and chrome) it doesn't works.

I've used the JNLP applet launcher, but that doesn't works too.

Does someone know how I can use a Java 3D applet in the browser?

I also have this problem. When I visit the Java 3D Example Applet page:
It says in the Status bar:
Error : Class not found: org.jdesktop.j3d.examples.four_by_four.FourByFour

I get this stack trace:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jdesktop.j3d.examples.four_by_four.FourByFour

The same happens if I try to make my own Java 3D applet with the JNLP applet launcher. I always get a ClassNotFoundException although the applet jar-file is included in the "archive" parameter. So why are there this errors, even on the original Java3D Site?

The errors appear both with IE and Firefox (Windows). I use Java 6 SE 1.6.0_21-b07 on 32-Bit Windows XP.

Edit: I just tried it with 1.6.0_20 and there it works, eh? Why is it working with an older Java version but not with the current one?

Edit: Nevermind, I found the [url=]topic discussing the problem[/url].

I can't imagine it "not working" without there being an error message of some kind in the Java Console; you want to tell us what that is?
