    HMRC deployed Browsium’s “Ion” at a year or two back at a cost of £1m that enabled them to upgrade their PCs and O/S and move to IE9 but retain backward compatibility with out any re-coding of the massive number of apps that had been coded for IE6.

    They claimed a £34m saving over re-coding apps which seems pretty feasible:

    Not sure why more organisations haven’t taken a similar approach – it seems a reasonably low risk way of dealing with legacy.

    Not just IE6 browser calls that are the problem, but getting stuffed by M$ JVM and Sun JVM not being equal, and then M$ JVM being binned and replaced with Sun one.

    If I had my way, if anyone suggests using Java in the browser for custom apps, I’ll tell the to go away and come back with an idea using conventional HTML,CSS and JavaScript, combined with standard server side scripting (PHP, ASP, or something) and Postgres/Mysql/etc.

    Good luck doing client-side digital signing with HTML5, though.

    That was the bunch I mentioned on the previous page.
