I think that WGraphics is a class from java2 and probbably uses a lot of native methods.
I really need a solution for AWT 1.0(1.1) the one that is supported by IExplorer or Netscape.There is the mistery of who overrites the Graphics and i came to the conclusion that is no subclass of Graphics but i found in the java/bin winawt.dll, winawt_g.dll and looking in them with a dependency walker i found all the declared abstract methods of Graphics :(

So i suppose java1 is dead, that is the deal with java2(sdk1.3.0) ?
How do i plug it in the browser?( IExplorer or Netscape)
if am looking at a site wich ... contains a JApplet , the browser will download all the standard packages it needs even if I have java2 installed on my computer???
