Java plugin for Netscape version 4.5


I have an application that runs out of the Netscape browser.
I need the newest version of the java plugin.


I download (this is a SPARC solaris box) sorry.

Run the program.

Now I have available...

/home/xxxxxx/j2re1.4.0_01/plugin/sparc/ns4 (plugin).

I have removed all existing paths and attempted to reestablish the env path...

setenv NPX_PLUGIN_PATH $HOME/.netscape/plugins:/

All one line...

When I check it at the browser, no path for plugin....

What did I miss.....

Did you make a symlink in your ~/.netscape/plugins director to point to java plugin?
cd ~/.netscape/plugins
ln -sf ~/j2re1.4.0_01/plugin/sparc/ns4/
And I am not sure if the older versions of netscape support local plugins directory, you might want to add the symlink into system-wide netscape plugins directory. Somewhere like /opt/netscape/plugins - it is your/sysadmins choice on where to install netscape, so make use of find to find the system-wide netscape plugins directory
find / -name -type d plugins -print something along these lines.
