Java Plugin in Mozilla 1.2.1


I'm using a java plugin with Mozilla 1.2.1 but i cannot open an applet that gives me this message:

"This page contains informations of a type (application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.3.1) that can only be viewed with the appropriate plugin."


I'm using the java plugin 1.4.0_03-b04.

This is the content of the aboutlugins page:
----------------------------------------------------------
Default Plugin
File name: libnullplugin.so
The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.
MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
* All types .* Yes

Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.0_03-b04
File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in1.4.0_03
MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
application/x-java-vm Java Yes
application/x-java-applet Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.3 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.2.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.2.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.3 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.3.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.4 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.0_03 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.3 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.2.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.2.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.3 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.3.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.4 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;jpi-version=1.4.0_03 Java Yes
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I think it may be something related to the missing jpi-version=1.3.1 string in the aboutlugin page.
Is there a way to manually modify this? Or what else can be the problem??

Thank to everyone can help!

It's just a link.

Usually it's in
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

In my case (I installed a new Mozilla),
/usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

su
updatedb
locate libjavaplugin_oji.so
Use ln to link them properly
You can have 10 versions of Java

Thanks for replying but i solved the problem by myself.
I modified a file under my homedir/.mozilla.
The name of the file is pluginreg.dat and contains all the MIME type extensions the plugin refers to.
I modified the one i needed and now everything works properly.

Use ln to link them properly --> to this point im confused...i had made soft link (in my case) with:
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.3.1_09/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
....and it's already there (i had made the soft link before anyway)...and nothing happen...
