Java SE: Draggable Applets and OpenJDK


One of the most popular features of the recent Java SE 6u10/11 releases was the new browser plugin architecture. Java Applets (or JavaFXJRuby, Groovy...applets) get their own VM, external to the browser process in which to execute. Meaning that applets have a more independent existence: they can choose their own VM parameters, and live beyond the lifetime of the web page they came from. Maybe that's why 78 million people downloaded it in December ?

A browser plugin does not have to be part of every Java SE implementation because the Java SE platform is not required to run in browsers. Nevertheless, as Joe announces, the team has decided to make the code part of OpenJDK so that the new features get supported in Linux and Mac too.

And, other good news about Java SE is that Jonathan Giles has signed up to take over Kirill's Swing Links of the Week. Definitely one to track for GUI programmers.
