OpenJDK / IcedTea is ###p



Please pardon my French....

First thing I did after installing F11 was opening a command prompt and see the level of Java included.

$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.5) (fedora-22.b16.fc11-i386)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 14.0-b15, mixed mode)

good, I think.

So I load the default Firefox browser, type About:plugins, see:

IcedTea Java Web Browser Plugin

File name: IcedTeaPlugin.so
The IcedTea Java Web Browser Plugin 1.4.1 (fedora-20.b14.fc11-i386) executes Java applets.
And so Ioad the Java Tester URL....
http://www.javatester.org/version.html

and get... NOTHING. The applet doesn't load. Doesn't show up.

Thoughts? Comments? Expletives? ;-)

PS: I think the installer should ask "do you want the Stallman-blessed JVM that causes more problems than it solves, or the Sun JRE that just woks ?" then it would proceed to contact the java.sun.com web site, display the EULA. and upon agreement proceed to install it. Sheesh. ;-)
