Hmm... JRuby as an applet?  ;)


Ah, apparently it's been tried...
http://datavision.sourceforge.net/DataVision/embed.html says,

    Since JRuby uses a custom class loader, you will have to either sign the applet
    or edit the client's java.policy file and add the line:
        permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "getClassLoader";
