Re: Displaying .java files in browser

This seems to be a per client resolution anyway when using ie.
IE is configured to view and start files as noted in the client
configuration.
So by default, ie starts word (if installed) in the browser window to show
word files.
Thats noted under windows_explorer/folder_options/file types (rough
translation).
if you have a setting for java files (which is most likely if you have some
type of java editor installed) - i expierienced that ie tries to download
the file. I'd like to know a workaround for that too...

greets from salzburg,
