Upgrading from way back I have the following packages installed, some of
the files are hanging links or belonging to no package.
# rpm -qa |grep java
java-binfmt-misc-1.03-8.5.x86_64
javahelp2-2.0.05-6.19.noarch
java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u20-1.9.x86_64

java-1_5_0-gcj-compat-devel-1.5.0.0-113.19.x86_64

I have added these lines to ~/.bashrc, but I get some errors with apps.
There is no classes.zip file (deprecated??).
export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0"
export CLASSPATH=/usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0
I have been able to do update-alternatives on individual files
l /etc/alternatives/java


lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 2010-05-14 00:39 /etc/alternatives/java ->
/usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.6.0-sun/bin/java*
I haven't found a way to do a mass update of all the files for 1.6.0_u20
and man "update-alternatives" is as clear as mud.
Regards
Sid.
