OpenJDK / IcedTea Web Plugin
I’ve been completely unable to get most of the Java plugins I need for work to operate using the OpenJDK / IcedTea plugin that both Ubuntu and Fedora shipped. Looking into things, it appears that they’re using a modified version of the GCJ plugin which has always been pretty behind the curve when it comes to actually working.
Anyone know why the official Java plugin isn’t released with OpenJDK, or if it is, why IcedTea is sticking with the incomplete GCJ plugin?
On a side note, why does OpenOffice.org on Fedora 9 require java-1.5.0-gcj instead of using java-1.6.0-openjdk? It seems a bit goofy to have two JRE’s installed.
