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

HowTo / Notes

(for JVM 1.4.1 on an unknown version of Wine:)

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.
