    I found this information to be very helpful. I had both Openjdk and Sun Java installed, and I couldn't get FireFox to use Sun Java plugin. I was having trouble getting a .jnlp to run correctly with Openjdk, but when I switched to Sun the vendor application ran flawlessly.

    I don't know which method worked, but I ran "update-alternatives --config java" and chose SunJava as my default, plus I removed Openjdk through Yast. I found I also had to add javaws to the file associations for .jnlp in Configure Desktop.

    Is there no such purge commands available in SUSE as it is in Ubuntu?

    You are asking in a thread that has been two years dead. Why?

    11.2 no longer exists, Sun's java has been removed from current
    distributions, so anything that is in this thread can not be applied to
    current releases.
