Applet: provide better error message/information at launch failure

    Details

      Description

      When an applet loads but fails to launch for some reason, the following message is displayed:

      "JavaFX application could not launch due to system configuration. See java.com/javafx for troubleshooting information."

      This is less than helpful, both for the end user and the developer.

      I'm not sure of all the scenarios which would trigger this message, but I think they would fall into two categories:

      1) Something is missing / wrong version on the end user's system.

      2) There is a bug in the application / deployment.

      An ideal error message would display useful information in both cases.

      Useful in this context means:

      1) Making it extremely easy for the end user to solve the problem and go on with running the application - and if not possible, at least saying why.

      2) Giving the developer all available relevant information.
