Java 7 Update

Starting with Java 7 Update 51, Java has an enhanced security model to make user systems less vulnerable to external exploits. The new version of Java does not allow users to run web applications using Java unless you adjust the security settings in the Java console. When the Java applet does not load properly, you may get a blank screen with just the class name, and highlighters at the top of the screen. This can be fixed by changing the following network setting in the Java console.
