This was popular for a while among programmers, but more applications used 1.3.1 or earlier.
jre-1.4 works great to show Java Web Applets on ies4linux until version 0.9.51 by following this guide below:
But it doesn't work any more after wine has been upgraded to the recent version 0.9.52:
Opening web pages containing Java applets will cause ies4linux to crash.
What does not
wine version 0.9.48 - 0.9.51: all java web applets worked fine
wine version: 0.9.52, causing ies4linux to crash
What was not tested
running java applications (.jar) in fake Windows

Works, but you need to set Wine to emulate nt40 or win2k, otherwise you'll get Hotspot errors. If you want to use Swing pass the "-Dsun.java2d.noddraw" parameter to the JVM. A lot of warnings about guard stack pages are emitted, but don't appear to affect functioning of the applications.
