IcedTea-Web [1] have now patch [3] from [2] thread,  to work pretty smooth with all Icedteas, all Openjdks and all Oracle javas.  It even do work with IBM java.
However, we needed to include few lines of copypasted code [3] line 274-283. Well it is not so much, but is potentially dangerous.

If this mini changeset -  http://jvanek.fedorapeople.org/oracle/jdk9/applet-minipatch/1/webrev/ may go in, it would be awesome and will make icedtea-web true Openjdk plugin. Do you think it is possible?

Just note - there already was a discussion about unnecessary complex version of similar patch -  [4] thread. As result it forbid any touches to sun.applet package. However current webrev do not add any more visibility. It changes from private to package private. I hope it is much more suitable

I sent this message originally to jdk9-dev.. It/I was wrong I guess. Sorry

Best regards,
