Java Add on question using IE9 and Version 6 update 30

Just downloaded and installed version 6 update 30 on two win 7 machines (one pro and one home premium) I now have an additional java add on one that points to ssv.dll and one that points to jp2ssv.dll

Java test fine and I have no errors, just wonder if the "two" add ons are "normal"

Thanks -- Bill

well I know they can be removed, I have googled it to death and I am curious if they are both part of Java's plan

These are both added by Java 7 as well, They are both IE BHO's (Browser Helper Objects). They are needed to view java web content with IE. They are "normal", and required if you are going to use java and IE.

Quote:
A new light-weight browser helper object, jp2ssv.dll, has been added
which performs the registry key redirection done by the old ssv.dll as
well as the cleanup of old Java Plug-Ins out of the Mozilla plugins
directory. It redirects all of the static and family CLSIDs to the new
Java Plug-In's jp2iexp.dll, and this code has been modified to deal
with arbitrary CLSIDs coming in for instantiation. More work is needed
to provide full SSV support in the new plugin. An associated broker
process, jp2ssvbroker.exe, has been added which elevates to either
medium or high integrity to help with this work, depending on the kind
of work needed. Shared code from the old ssv.dll has been placed in
the ssv_common directory; more refactorings between the old and the
new SSV DLLs will be done in a subsequent putback.

A small custom launcher, jp2launcher.exe, has been added for Windows
Vista which is registered as a broker process by the installer on this
platform. This launcher performs the necessary argument validation to
prevent other IE plugins from escaping the low integrity sandbox, and
then executes javaw.exe.

The installer has been modified to register all of the above new DLLs
and executables in the appropriate ways, and to unregister them during
uninstallation. Currently if the new plugin is the default, then
during installation it will register jp2ssv.dll as a browser helper
object and unregister ssv.dll. Once the Java Control Panel work for
switching between the old and new plugins is done, both of these
browser helper objects will be registered simultaneously, and one or
the other will be disabled depending on the toggle value in the
control panel.

A Guy,

Thank you for your responce, I had dug up info similar to your quote from the Java site. My confusion was after updating the next time I opened IE9 it ask if I wanted to enable the helper directed to the "older" ssv.dll.

I currently have them both enabled, would I be correct in leaving the "older" Java helper disabled?

Sorry for being so dense on this one but it seems very confusing

Thank you so much for your time and response! -- Bill

Not to sound like a wise guy, but disable it from within IE, and then see if it causes any Java issues. For most people, there is not much use for Java in normal surfing. Just keep in mind that you have it disabled should an issue arise. A Guy

I thought of that also, so I did and then tested using Java's site. I found I had a IE9 freeze up when java's own aplet test page ran.

So we have the answer

BTW: your suggestion was very apporpriate, I take no offence to anything.

I am also learning how Java is less used in everyday use than it once was, all good stuff.

Thnak you for your assistance! -- Bill
