Location of LiveConnect classes =[edit]

All of the documentation linked from here is out of date in at least one respect: where do you find the LiveConnect class definitions for compiling applets that refer to javascript? Sun's documentation describes it as being included in "JAWS.JAR", but this was last distributed with JDK1.3 AFAICT. The mozilla documentation suggests it should be in [path to mozilla installation]/Java/Classes/java40.jar, but this was last true for Netscape 4, I think.

Anyone know how you actually use this API today? JulesH 20:25, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Rhinohide has up-to-date instructions on this. Michael Allan 10:13, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Someone might want to mention that Opera and Gecko-based browsers use this. Also, it isn't mentioned that this is also a communication method used by flash. Also, it isn't mentioned that Opera uses Java, and, if I recall correctly, IE uses ActiveX. --203.63.65.189 01:16, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
