Re: Fedora and Java - just give us the facts

(1) How complete is Fedora Java?

Answered in the Java FAQ you referred to

I have seen warnings for example that it is unsafe
to use the Fedora Java plugin for Firefox,
and I assume that the same warning would hold true
for other Java applications, eg mindterm.

No. The unsafe warnings apply only to applet and not applications.


(2) Are the two Java installations completely independent?
Can one have both installed?
What about the environment variable CLASSPATH?

Yes. You can use alternatives to switch between them.


(3) The Fedora documentation, eg <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JavaFAQ>,
seems to me slightly misleading in not mentioning Sun's Java at all.

Actually it does. It is called OpenJDK now which is planned to be included in the next release.
