Is there some other way to make yast happy and recognize that Java IS indeed

i also failed (ignorance?) to move from SUN Java 6 to 7 on my 11.4
day-before-last--the
same day my banks locked me out because i was running 'old' and 'dangerous'
software!

tried it with YaST Software Management and then zypper...both installed ok
but neither
Firefox nor Chrome could find/use it..

I'm using 1.6 JRE because that's the one that they assume I have installed.
Banks,
institutions, code generated for windows that also works in Linux and which
balks if java is
from a different vendor with strange errors... so yes, I have to use JRE.

I'm not a java expert and do not know how to tell each java program which of
the installed
java versions to use, except to make another one the default java with the
updatealternatives
thing.

denverd@linux:~> java -version java version "1.7.0_05" Java(TM) SE Runtime
Environment
(build 1.7.0_05-b06) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.1-b03, mixed mode)

java version "1.6.0_33"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_33-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.8-b03, mixed mode)

It is simple, I just install their rpm and make it the default java with update
alternatives.


I might also install 1.7 and find out what works with it and what not.
