JMF applet without JMF installed?

In: Java

25 Aug 2004

A long shot, but do any of you Java programmers think an applet that uses JMF can be deployed and run on a client that doesn’t have JMF installed?

I think the chances would be higher if instead of an applet, a Java Web Start application was used instead. Bundling the JMF libraries could work, but there hasn’t been any report of success as far as I can find. (It is possible with a full-blown Java application though.)

Any leads at all would be good. In the meantime I will be trying this out myself.

You’d have to somehow be able to copy the JMF dll’s to the JRE/bin directory… not sure if that’s possible through an applet, but if you find a way to do it shoot me an email bud!

Most people in this situation use the platform-independent version of JMF which does not actually have to be installed; it is just a jar.

I’d also like to point out our open-source implementation of JMF that we are working on (FMJ, – this could also be a possibility once it matures more.

Hey. Here is a page on JMF. We have lots of other articles too on large scale java application building.
