i also failed (ignorance?) to move from SUN Java 6 to 7 on my 11.4

I'm using 1.6 JRE because that's the one that they assume I have installed.
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

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

cer@Telcontar:~> java -version
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.

It would be useful to know which java components installed by openSUSE
correspond to which Sun-supplied components. There is more than JRE,
isn't there?

After the Sun components are installed, I gather, for general use
(browsers and such), there is no longer any need for any other Java

Although java seems to be working on my 12.2 system, I think there is a
bit of Java chaff still floating about the place...

Yours sincerely,
