Microsoft Java Virtual Machine

One of our customer have some problem using XP SP2 access to our java(applet) online real time quote. I install a new version with SP2 included, no java support in IE(Internet explorer). I check Microsoft website, seem like they didn't include Microsoft Java Virtual Machine(MSJVM) in those porduct after SP1a. They even provide a tools to convert MSJVM dependend program to .Net platform. Sun's java is moving more to the backend like J2EE server. Out application still base on applet. The original code for graphic java on unix platform(including Linux) is buggy. Those legacy code is still in the new version of java, atleast in version 1.4. There is no java graphics in J2EE, may be sun doesn't want to fix the problems.
