Exclamation JAVA problems. "Empty" javascripts !!!!!!

  • Windows XP Professional
  • IE 6
  • desktop IBM
  • ZONE ALARM SECURITY SUITE (registered, full version)
  • TWO JAVAS:
  • IBM 32-bit runtime environment for : Java 2, v1.4.1. (an original IBM, came with my pc)
  • J2SE runtime environment 5.0 update 7

My problem is that I cannot open SOME (only a few) sites in IE. I see down left at the taskbar, IE mentioning “javascirpt: selectxa( )”
The same happens in the latest MOZILLA FIREFOX 1.5.0.4 I also use.

The problem began when I downloaded the latest java 7, as the 6 was not working. As a result I had two javas: the 6 and the 7. I deleted the 6 and the settings of the 6 remained in ZONEALARM. Should I delete all the programs in ZA containing java 6? …. And permit full access to java 7 in ZA ?
Should I delete the IBM JAVA ? :
HOW CAN I FIX THE PROBLEM ?
...even after I allowed all JAVAS in ZA to have access in the internet nothing happened...


Thank you.
Maggie

Default Re: JAVA problems. "Empty" javascripts !!!!!!

JRE continues to plaque developers as so many do not write to the core standard. I run into issues with the different JRE's constantly. Primavera is one developer that continues to make my life diffcult. Unfortunatly, there is no easy solution. Might try uninstalling JRE and reinstalling the current build. No promises though.

JavaScript doesn't need Java to work, they're only distantly related. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript

That old IBM Java has security issues, I would get rid of it.

Disable ZA, or uninstall it. Does it work now?

Are you getting an error code? If so post it.

Either configure ZA to allow java, or uninstall and re-install za.

Also, I'd uninstall all java apps, and install the latest:

Sun Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 8
