JVM for Macintosh

Greetings, all.

I'm trying to access a web page on my Macintosh, running OS-X. Using
both IE and Safari browsers, I get the following message:

"The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) installed on this system is not
supported. JVM is required to display reports."

Can anyone point me to a place where I can download JVM for IE or Safari
for Macintosh OS-X?

Thank you very much.

It should be part of the system software updates.
Open System Preferences >> System >> Software Update.

Java is built in to Mac OS X. If you have Mac OS X, you have a JVM.

What site is this?

It's a site for a company called WebTrends (http://webtrends.com). On
the site, a subscriber can monitor traffic on his/her web site. The
actual page I'm trying to access is a demo of the site that a subscriber
would see to get a report.

To see exactly what I'm talking about, go to
http://www.webtrends.com/Products/We...FreeTrial.aspx, click on
"access the webtrends 7 demo reports" on the right side of the page,
create a quick account for yourself, and then click on "launch demo"
under "small business" "Web trends 7 on demand"

The erroe message I typed above is from Explorer. The Safari error
messages are as follows:

"JAVASCRIPT- The browser you are using is not supported. The following
browsers are supported: Microsoft Internet Explorer, versions 5.0 and
up. If you use an unsupported browser, not all features may function
properly."

and

"SAFARI CANNOT FIND THE INTERNET PLUG-IN. The page
³demo.webtrends.com:80 - WebTrends Desktop: WebTrends 7 Trial² has
content of MIME type ³application/x-java-applet;version=1.3.1_11².
Because you donıt have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this
content canıt be displayed."

Thanks for your help.

That site is doing some stupid things that will only work in Explorer
for Windows.

The first message is basically their way of saying that they can't be
bothered to support Mac users, and so they've coded their site to check
what kind of browser you're using and warn you if you're not using MSIE
on Windows.

The second one is evidence of the idiocy they're practicing. If they'd
set the MIME type to be something like "application/x-java-applet", it
probably would have worked. By tacking on that version info, they're
just asking to cause people trouble, and you're getting that trouble.

Basically they're breaking common standards here, and you're bearing the
brunt of it.

10.3 has a good JVM.

The web page seems seriously messed up. It's probably sloppy
development or a bad case of Microsoft-induced confusion. Microsoft has
two ways of doing everything - the open standards way and the Microsoft
way. It allows them to claim "standards compliance" while releasing
technical documentation and examples for their non-standard
implementations. If they're doing this again with Java, Sun
Microsystems will be all over them. Nobody stops MS from making a mess
of JavaScript, though. Totally different language.

As an aside, that code looks suspiciously like* the output of
Sun's own HTMLConverter when set to the option for 'both'
browsers for Windows.

( * Sorry, I could not find the actual page, in the end, so
I am going purely on what has been quoted. )

Sun itself AFAIR, has stopped recommending the HTMLConverter, or
at least particular options for using it. (And not a moment too soon.)

Follow-Ups set to comp.lang.java.machine.

Sounds like they're requiring Java 1.3.1 for their applet. That's
pretty silly, since 1.3.1 is a rather outdated version of Java. Safari
only uses Java 1.4.x. You can try loading the site in IE because it
uses Apple's Java 1.3.1 JVM, but when I tried loading the link above in
IE the browser hung and I had to force quit it.

Anyway, WebTrends should update their code to work with more recent
versions of Java.
