There is an alternative fix for IE that bypasses DriverManager completely
(for some installations  DriverManager doesn't work at all).

A few things to be aware of:

i) you're attempting to make the connection from the applet (client browser)
to your host database on 'graphium.xxx.ac.jp', which will throw a security
exception unless you use signed applets because of the applet's security
sandbox (appletviewer can be told to ignore these). Applets are generally
only allowed to make socket connections back to the place they were served
from.

ii) IE has a buggy JVM which requires this workaround:

    Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver").newInstance();

to properly register the driver. I've never encountered this but I've heard
it reported a bit, it may be a red herring.

Regards,
Joe
