I'm testing an application in IE. There is a Java applet on it and I need an easy way to test what happens when Java isn't installed on the machine. I can uninstall Java, run the test, and then install it again but that is obviously a pain. Is there a way anyone knows of for me to quickly turn off Java, run the test, and then turn Java back on?
I know what some might say about this not being a perfect test. I agree but the thing I'm testing is if a message is displayed when Java isn't installed on the machine. As it's not that critical I don't feel that bad about doing the full uninstall etc.
It doesn't have to be IE either. I don't mind using Firefox for this test.
I think most of the newer browsers moved the java settings into "Manage Plug-ins" or "Manage Add-ons", usually located in the Tools menu. You'll see the Java plug in settings under that.
Another way to do it is using a testing service by Adobe. https://browserlab.adobe.com/en-us/index.html It allows you to view your website under multiple browsers and settings without having to have those setups on your computer.
