We intend to use JDK 7 for our development use. But there is a dumb (but critical) web applet application which relies on JDK/JRE 6 (otherwise it won't run). I only need the JDK/JRE 6 applet to run in either IE or Firefox. How to do this?

  • Install only the JRE 6 browser plugin? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 9 '13 at 3:51

    From the JRE 6 installer? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 9 '13 at 3:53
  • @IgnacioVazquez-Abrams Where to find the manual for this kind of hackie installation? Browser wizard always guides me to download the latest Java version (i.e Java 7). – fajrian Jul 9 '13 at 3:55
  • Wouldn't know . – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 9 '13 at 3:56
