In general its not done because jsse contains security code that falls under
a lot of country's export laws.  Even if your country allows it, the Sun
license (assuming you're using Sun's code) has certain restrictions about
redistribution.  If you are setting up the webpage that hosts the applet,
the safest bet is to use the Java plug-in api/markup.  This lets you specify
what JVM to use with your applet, and the client will automatically be
redirected to download the correct JRE if it is not already installed.
