I can't tell you, as I don't possess the 9.2 DVD. But if YaST can't find the
package on tge CD set, this is probably the case.

Anyway, you can download it easily enough, now that 9.2 is available via ftp.
I have just seen the package at:
ftp://suse.cs.utah.edu/pub/suse.com/suse/i386/9.2/suse/i586/java-1_4_2-sun-plugin-1.4.2.06-1.1.i586.rpm
It's about 792 KB.

Looking at the ftp directory I saw that there is also a
java-1_4_2-sun-jdbc-1.4.2.06-1.1.i586.rpm package. So it seems as if the Java
package from the standard install didn't include the JDBC database access
functionality, either. So if you need it, better install that one, too.

Makes me wonder why SuSE would split the Java distribution in several
packages...

Regards.
