In trying to upgrade from jre 1.4.2 to 1.6, I found that the structure
is totally different then what SuSE has used before. It's now a

update to make sure that Firefox as well as OpenOffice find the updated

Has anybody did this before and can you give me some pointers?
The case is that I try to compile openproj, which requires JDK 1.6. But
first I need to understand what the current structure for java is.

Why not just use our binary RPMs?

We upgrade to latest update levels in security updates anyway.

Per Marcus, I have the openSUSE java versions under /usr/lib/jvm

I also have 1.5 loaded under /home/kai/apps/jdk1.5.0_13
