      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      On a cold system, even a simple Hello World Applet will initialize very slow ~2 minutes before console and jvm logging begin.

      The init() is not being called until 1-2 minutes.

      This can be exhibited even with thick applications like Eclipse, if a JRE/JVM has previously been instantiated then the time is less than 5 seconds, if however a JVM has not previously been instantiated the processes will take 1-2 orders of magnitude longer to initialize.


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      On a cold system, even a simple Hello World Applet will initialize very slow ~2 minutes before console and jvm logging begin.

      The init() is not being called until 1-2 minutes.

      This can be exhibited even with thick applications like Eclipse, if a JRE/JVM has previously been instantiated then the time is less than 5 seconds, if however a JVM has not previously been instantiated the processes will take 1-2 orders of magnitude longer to initialize.


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Deploy simple/tutorial “HelloWorld” to a local IIS instance, then deploy Applet class.
      Run the Applet web page on a system that has not had a JRE/JVM instantiated since last reboot.

      The simple Hello World Applet will take 1-3 minutes to instantiate.

      Even the java console will not load and the java icon will also not show in the system taskbar.

      Once the Console instantiates the Applet will init() within 1-2 seconds.

      All subsequent executions will init() within 1-2 or actually milli-seconds.

      Does not matter if the Applet has been cached or not, there is some additional
      latency if the Applet has not been cached, but negligible when considering the
      1-3 minutes to wait for init() method to be called.

      If you abort the Applet and reload it will generally init() within a few seconds, thus
      considering this might be a waiting/locking condition, but stack traces do not indicate
      this is the case. Stack traces have been provided.


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The Applet should instantiate on a cold system within 2-4X of a system that has a warm "previously instantiated" JRE.
