I'm trying to access a Notes 5.0 database via Explorer that I normally do with Navigator. It is a Java based view and gives me the following Java error when I try it in Explorer:

HTTP Web Server: Your browser's Java implementation does not adequately support usage of this feature.

I can do this in Navigator with out a problem, but it is really slow. I thought Explorer might be faster.

I thought I installed the latest Java Virtual Machine. Also, I can't select the Microsoft Java Engine in the Explorer preferences (it is grayed out).

Can anyone help me with this?

I have been waiting a long time to read about Mac Java in Explorer. Virtual Java Machine is also greyed out on my PowerBook copy of Explorer. Oddly though, it is selectable on my desktop computer's copy. I have no idea why. Can anyone supply the info?

I find Java items in Explorer do not run as reliably as in Netscape. I agree with the preceding post.

Netscape Navigator uses its own version of Java. Netscape/AOL announced that they will stop development of their own Java engine and use whatever Java engine is on the client machine.

MSIE 4.5 uses Java that comes with the MacOS rather than its own Java engine.

As you can tell, not all Java engines are the some.
