       icedtea-web provides a Free Software web	browser	plugin running applets
       written in the Java programming language	and an implementation of  Java
       Web Start, originally based on the NetX project.

       NetX  allows  Java  applets  and	applications to	be downloaded over the
       network,	cached,	and (by	default) run in	a secure sandbox  environment.

       cally. Update and security settings, among others, can be set using the
       itw-settings command.
       icedtea-web   also   includes   a   plugin   to	 enable	 Java  applets
       ( within web browsers.
