    Default Java 1_6_0 vs Java 1_5_0 - website applets and other misc


    Thanks to Aiko ( 'Java applet bailed' (http://tinyurl.com/7rpelz) ) I've
    been able to tackle an issue I was having with some Java applets in
    Firefox.

    I think this is both the case on openSUSE 11.1 and 11.0.

    The main issue was not being able to start Netilla and Sonicwall portal
    applets and having some other strange behavior and maybe even Firefox
    crashing due to this.

    I initially tried fixing the applet issue by trying the different Java
    1_0_6 open and sun version as also the new 1_7_0 version.

    Removing the newer versions altogether and only leaving the Java 1_5_0
    and plugin installed solved my issues.

    I was wondering if others are also having issues with Java 1_6_0 and if
    a fix is known.

    The DE I'm using is GNOME.. but KDE 4.1 seems to suffer more issues
    after installing java 1_6_0 (the jexec error for example
    http://forums.opensuse.org/applicati...n-problem.html )

    Curious,
    Wj

    Yep, try installing ' Aptana Studion '
    (http://update.aptana.com/update/studio/3.2/) in eclipse using 11.1
    default setup.

    Wont work.. however changing the java version to 1.7 icetea-dev fixes
    it. (KDE4.1/11.1, but doubt DE matters)

    Hi magic31,
    during my search on the web I found the following:
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=304021

    and just tried the workaround I described in my thread :-)
    because it worked on my former system with OS 10.3!!

    Maybe it's just due to the installed:
    java-1_5_0-gcj-compat - JPackage Runtime Scripts for GCJ
    which is compatible to the 1_5 plugin!
    Heaven knows:-)
