What is the Java Deployment Toolkit?
This article applies to:
This page describes the Java Deployment ToolKit (DT) features with these sections:
Does the 'Java DT plug-in blocked' message means the Java plug-in is blocked?No, blocking the Java DT plug-in does not mean the Java plug-in is blocked. The Java DT plug-in does the Java version detection on a user’s system. The Java plug-in enables the Java applets and applications to run within a browser on a user’s system.
What happens if the Java Deployment Toolkit plug-in is blocked?By blocking the Java DT plug-in, the Java version detection mechanism is disabled. Therefore, when a user tries to launch a Java applet or application, that requires a specific Java version other than the active Java version on a user’s system, it will fail.
Will my Java plug-in function if the Java DT plug-in is disabled?Yes, the Java plug-in will continue to work even if the Java DT plug-in is disabled.
