Java on Statler (SOLVED)

I m currently using Debian squeeze so you can imagine how I get excited to see #! based on debian.

Just one small thing which is still problematic for me: Java.

My internet banking is using Java, but it seems that jre is not enough.
On Madbox, I saw plugin Icedtea. And with this plugin everything works smooth.
If I understand well, Icedtea is based on JDK not JRE, am I right?

I tried to install on debian squeeze and it doesn t work whereas on #! 9.04  even if it was not installed by default I managed it to work.
On debian squeeze I don t know why It didn t want to download the plugin (visible on synaptic, but informing me that impossible to download, problem with repositories??)

Is it possible then to integrate it in Statler by default or at least  verify that it will work as on #! 9.04?

Thanks in advance :-)

Re: Java on Statler (SOLVED)

Off the top of my head, I am almost sure this has not made it into the first alpha. If this is the case, we should look at including in the next.

Hi Jdemnahouby

It seems I can run the applet on that page you linked to. Sorry I couldn't help you, and I've got no clue to what your problem might consist of...

Well there is openjdk-6-jdk and openjdk-6-jre.  There are two different plugins listed on the debian wiki.  icedtea-gcjwebplugin and icedtea6-plugin.

In your browser type about:plugins to find what java and plugin is being used.

Re: Java on Statler (SOLVED)

Hello

I used the tip on this forum: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … iceweasel/
And now everything is working :-)
icedtea6-plugin seems to be enough

Thanks all!

ie the thread in post #4.

Quoting the 'solution' from that thread:

In /etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf you have to change this line:
net.ipv6.bindv6only=1

To this:
net.ipv6.bindv6only=0

And run (as root): invoke-rc.d procps restart

The item "Add Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE)" appears on the To Do list and references this thread.

Icedtea references openjdk (jre) whereas some sites require the 'proper' Sun version right? Note icedtea6-plugin and dependencies is a 34MB download.

Edit: The icedtea6-plugin seems to run java according to this test:
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml
on both Iceweasel and Firefox. The above mojebanka site also seems to work - although I have to stop an unresponsive javascript. This is without making the bindv6only.conf change.

Oh note #2: sun-java6-plugin is a 40MB download!

Re: Java on Statler (SOLVED)

Hoping this issue is 'solved'.

Looking at this bug report is seems icedtea's been fixed for a while:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=560044

the problem should be fixed in openjdk-6 version 6b18~pre1-3 and its icedtea-plugin. That does not help with the non-free sun-java6-jdk of course.

I'm reading 'should be fixed' as 'should have been fixed' - I didn't earlier! wink

And Sun Java was updated today - update 19. Nothing I can see in the change log but we can hope.

Assuming both are fixed then those who need Java just need to decide whether they want the 'open' or the Sun version and the iso doesn't need to be bulked up by 30-odd MB - I hope.
