It is pretty easy and straight forward to do this in Netscape.
var pluginArray = navigator.plugins;
javaPlugin = pluginArray["Java Plug-in"].description;
javaPlugin = javaPlugin.split(" ");
javaPluginVersion = parseFloat(javaPlugin);
. But however it is not possible in IE. You need to put a little applet to check for this in IE.
