Hello Dalibor and cvsup,

  Yes, I did get Michael Koch and Thomas Fitzsimmons's gcjwebplugin
compiled with Kaffe and Mozilla 1.6, but I found it was not functional.
In fact, it had beed modified for Kaffe, and it seems not to work well.
I asked Michael Koch in #kaffe IRC channel, and Michael said that the
JNI part of gcjwebplugin is not ready yet. I am sure there should be
less amount of modifications to get gcjwebplugin working once the JNI
part is ready.
