funny thing: Applet error when visiting Oracle website looking forrelease notes on Java plugin

I think this is funny myself.

I typed "java new plugin" in google search, first link is

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/plugin2-142482.html

When I go there, I get an applet error!

It seems harmless, not sure. But was wondering, is this something
others see as well? Here is the error:


"java.io.FileNotFoundException: JNLP file error: DragExample.jnlp. Please make sure the file exists
and check if "codebase" and "href" in the JNLP file are correct.
at sun.plugin2.applet.JNLP2Manager.loadJarFiles(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)"

Here is a screen shot

I am running firefox 3.6.17 on windows 7
My Java/JRE is all update, control panel says I have
1.6.0_24 under system.

I can expect applet errors on a web site, but not on an official
Oracle webite about Java !

I see it fine with Firefox 4.0.1 windows 7 64 bit, JRE 1.6.0_25

To check out if it is you or oracle, see if you can view some of the
applets at http://mindprod.com/applet/applets.html

Nope. Page renders fine without error in Chrome 11 in Ubuntu 10. The applet
doesn't show, but they only say it runs in IE 6 and Firefox 3 and there is no
error.

Agreed, it's very lame. I also get the error and, as pointed out, the
page doesn't even render properly.

I didn't have any problems with the rendition on various browsers, but did
experience the DragExample.jnlp not found error. Isn't it just a case of
this file not being where it's supposed to be? Anyway .JNLP wreaks of
WebStart freakishness to me and therefore you deserve what you get!
Not a good ad for applet technology which is still important and
under-valued in my opinion.

Let's hope the release of Plugin3 this year will set things right!

Can you please provide pointers to the new functionality available in
"Plugin3"? Will it seek to address disastrous architectural flaws such as: -
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7001755
And loving it,

Starker this is Java; we don't "loving it" here!

Is that “plugin†or “plug-in�

No no no, you need to pitch the first word high and draw it out:

AAAAAAND ........ LOVing it!
Starker this is Java; we don't "loving it" here!

“Starker sleeps with the dogs.â€
“Are you sure that’s all right?â€
“They don’t mind.â€
