See -

At-least I tested the IcedTea web plugin on F8-rawhide, at it works like 
  charm for most usage, but it did not worked for an Oracle legacy app 
at my work.

The legacy app in question did detected the plugin an fired the applet 
but the app seems to have faced some in-compatibilities. I'll be glad to 
know if its possible to have any workarounds.
