Since Java is a problem with some older browser and on
Macintosh computers, this archive may be used in two different modes: with and
without Java applets. From the homepage http://www.eg-models.de
select the menu:
|menu item MODELS
|menu item NO APPLETS
||no Java applet
Only the Java enhanced version allows to switch between the
preview image and the applet version of models.
On Windows/Win-NT PCs the standard browsers usually do
all necessary Java installations and no special user setup is necessary.
On UNIX systems some additional setup might
be necessary for each user, for example, a correct CLASSPATH - please, consult
your system operator.
In Case of Further Problems
The initial download of the Java archive may need some time
on slow connections. Between 60 KB and 70 KB must be transferred over the
network until JavaView starts. This amount is much less than the size of a
geometry file. This archive is transferred once such that the applets on next pages do
not require a new download of the archive. They use the version stored in the browser's
If there is no applet or geometry visible after some time,
try the following steps:
On Windows and Unix assure that you have a browser with version
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 and
Netscape Navigator 4.08 and later.
If you do not know your browser's version number, go to the following page
which will list your browser properties.
On Apple Macintosh have a look at the page.
- Enable Java: If you do not see the
message "JavaView initializing ..." after some time, then your
browser could not start JavaView. Maybe Java is not enabled in your
browser, so check the menu entry
Extras-Internet Options-Advanced in Microsoft
Internet Explorer whether your browser is Java enabled.
- Security Issues: If you do not see the
message "JavaView initializing ..." after some time, there might
be a security issue. Try open the Java Console of your browser via menu
Communicator-Tools-Java Console or
Console and look for the word
Security. (Remark: on MS
Internet Explorer the console must be enabled in the Preferences.)
Security issues are a bit delicate for beginners to understand and you
might want to ask an expert who knows about your operating system and the
security policy. This has nothing to do with JavaView.
