Java Applet Not Working (Blank) in IE9

Hi all, Microsoft launched IE9 RC successfully, in IE9 when we try to play videos, musics or TV shows which is based on Adobe flash,Microsoft silverlight or Java the plugins are not loading and it seems blank. The Java is not running in IE9 problem happens the user has installed the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) into his machine, and the Java Plug-in has been enabled as add-on for IE. The affected web pages with Java applets have been working properly in IE8 or earlier.
The non-working of Java applet is affected in many websites, web services and web apps depend on Java, especially for login authentication to secure sites such as Internet banking or brokerage accounts, stream live results, scores, foreign exchange (forex) rates or stock prices, playback video or audio, and present other interactive information.

Reason

The reason of Java not working in IE9 is because the Java applets has been blocked by ActiveX Filtering, it is a new feature in IE9.the solution is to temporarily turn off ActiveX Filtering.

1) How to Enable Activex filtering -> Go to Tools option in IE9 Click on Activex Filtering, the tick in front of the option will disappear. It means the option is disabled. If it is not there the option is already disabled.

If you enabled the java loading in IE9, you may encounter a problem that the java causes the web page to crash. We can stop this problem also, to enable the compatibility view option in IE9. If you enabled Compatibility option then add which address you need to option that contained java applet.

2) How to Enable Compatibility view in IE9 -> Go to Tools  and click on Compatibility view settings option, click add button and add the web site.
To remove a website from Compatibility view, just go back to Compatibility View Settings, and remove the site from the Compatibility View list.

    What do you mean temporarily?  If I am browsing the web I don’t know what sites use java applets.  I don’t know when to turn ActiveX Filtering on and when to turn it off.

  3. My applets which were used to show the image, were working fine in IE6 & IE7. but, in IE8 there was no image display, applets were not inited.
    to resolve this, we need to do the following settings,

    we need to set the properties of java.policy file, to applets run in ie8 or ie9.
    we do have java.policy files in jre/lib/security/java.policy and jdk/jre/lib/security/java.policy.
    apart from these two policy files, we need to put the policy file in C:\documents and settings.
    I had java.policy files in jre and jdk, but I did not have the policy file in c:\documents and settings.
    What I have done is, just I edited the policy tool,
    1)cmd.exe
    2)c:\documents and settings>edit .java.policy and set the permission to AllPermission as follows,
    grant codeBase “http://localhost:8001/-” {
     permission java.security.AllPermission;
    };

    thats it.
    and my problem is resolved.
