Java 7 breaks some Physlets - Jan 27, 2013 at 7:01PM

Java 7 is not completely backward compatible with previous versions of Java and this version has broken a number of Physlets.   There is, however, a new Physlet.jar that corrects for these Java 7 bugs.  

http://www.compadre.org/osp/items/detail.cfm?ID=10710

Download the jar and replace all reference to multiple jar files in an HTML page with a reference to this single jar.  

I have found and fixed problems with Optics Bench, B Field, and the 3D E&M Wave Physlet.  Although we are unable to correct problems with the Prentice Hall (Pearson) CDs,  material from these CDs will soon be available on ComPADRE.
