I'm evaluating the use of applets in a portlet-application on a jboss-portal-2.7.0.GA-server.
I've set up a little portlet with a test-applet. It uses the applet-tag. (I've tested the same thing with the object-tag also.)
A Java-Plugin 184.108.40.206 is installed for Firefox and for the Internet Explorer 7.0.
The Applet on the portal-page is rendered correctly with FF.
If I use IE to show the portal-page the IE kinda freezes. No error message, no hint, what happens, no Java-Plugin-Loading, nothing.
If I use this IE to display some other applet on the www, the applet is shown correclty.
The security settings in the IE for my portal-server are even lower than for the www.
Any hint, what the problem may be?
Additional note: My OS is Windows XP SP2, exact IE-version is 7.0.5730.13.
