How to configure Java settings in Internet Explorer?

Java is a programming language developed by Sun Microsystems, which runs on any Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Java applets are applications in a webpage displayed in web browser. Java settings can be enabled in web browser for viewing of webpages containing java scripts or applets. The Java plug-in upgrades the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which comes with your browser. So enabling Java is necessary in a web browser to view different webpages and download various applets. Java charts can also be processed if you enable Java in web browser. JRE, Java Runtime Environment, runs programs written in Java. JRE is used in web browser as plug-in or add-on, and can be run from command line. The webpage is loaded with graphics that require additional plug-in to view the webpages. You must always ensure that Internet Explorer or ay web browser must be enabled for Java for running it effectively.

Following are the various ways to configure Java in Internet Explorer:
  • Configure Java Security
  • Enable Java Script
  • Tips

Configure Java Security

Go to ‘Internet Explorer’, select ‘Internet Options’ on ‘Tools’ menu, and click ‘Security’ tab. Select the ‘Security Zone’ you want, and click ‘Custom level’, and then ‘Settings’. Now select ‘Java Permissions’ in Microsoft VM and click ‘Custom’ to view current Permissions in it. You can ‘Edit Permissions’ for the zone you want. Microsoft Virtual Machine is used for setting the security zone.

Enable Java Script

To enable Java Script, go to ‘Tools’ in Internet Explorer and select ‘Internet Options’. Proceed to get ‘Advanced’ tab and scroll through the list of settings to get ‘Java’ category. Locate ‘Use JRE 1.5.0_05′ and select the checkbox. Once selected, Java Scripts are enabled and you must restart the system for the changes to take effect.


You must enable Java settings for viewing webpages that contain Java contents or Java scripting. You can additionally use Java plug-in for accessing extra features. You can take advantage of JDK 1.1 functionality, perfect running of Java applets, and support for Java HotSpot. This plug-in allows enterprise web managers to direct Java applets and Java Beans components on their intranet web pages to run via Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
