icedtea-web man page

icedtea-web provides a Free Software web browser plugin running applets written in the Java programming language and an implementation of Java Web Start, originally based on the NetX project.

NetX allows Java applets and applications to be downloaded over the network, cached, and (by default) run in a secure sandbox environment. Subsequent runs of the applet download the latest version automatically. Update and security settings, among others, can be set using the itw-settings command.
icedtea-web also includes a plugin to enable Java applets (http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp) within web browsers.
