Browser plugin that executes Java applets

'gcjwebplugin' is a plugin for Mozilla and other web browsers for the execution of Java applets. It uses the JVM provided by GCJ. The package is now quite flexible with its build and runtime dependencies now. It builds with every Java compiler that supports the GNU EmbeddedWindow extensions (which should be all that depend on/are derived from GNU classpath). The Mozilla build dependency is gone too as the needed header files of Mozilla are now included in gcjwebplugin. This package has been folded into classpath; please see that entry ( for the latest information.
