The JavaTM Plug-in Component
The JavaTM Plug-in component enables applets written to the Java 2 Platform 1.4 specification to be run in Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer web browsers.Java Plug-in Developer Guide
The Java Plug-in Developer Guide (also available in PDF) provides documentation in the following areas:Common DOM API

Applet developers can use the Common DOM API when writing applets that are intended to be run with the Java Plug-in. The Common DOM API enables developers to traverse Document Object Models from within their applets. The Common DOM API is supported only by the Java Plug-in, and it will not work if used in conjunction with applications as opposed to applets, nor will it work in applets that aren't run in the environment provided by the 1.4 Java Plug-in.
