AWT Input Method in Applet

I have a sample code from which provides how to add a new AWT Input Method to write in languages like Hebrew and Russian. That code does not handle some useful events as AWT TextField such as Ctrl+Left, Ctrl+Right, Selection, etc.

In addition Sun requires to put a jar file with that new Input Method in a JRE directory on the client machine.

I need that Input Method in my Chat Applet, so I don't want to put anything on the client machine.

Can you point me to a more complete and free source how to implement a new AWT Input Method to write in Hebrew and Russian?

How to add a new Input Method without storing a jar file on the client machine?
