Question Migrated to x86_64 (Java Help)


And I need help - I need to run 2 applications which require 'sun-java6-jre' and "sun-java6-plugin" however I understand there is no Java for x86_64...yet. I was told that I can use "openjdk" which works with 'some' java applications and I was just wondering what most here recommend I do? Right now I have no done anything but install Debian Lenny x86_64.

Thanks for any recommendations!

Have you tried using 'sun-java6-jre' and "sun-java6-plugin"? Many 64-bit distros also install 32-bit libraries, meaning you can still run 32-bit programs.

No, I just assumed it would not work and did not want to load programs that would conflict with any alternatives for getting Java. Will this cause problems later if sun-java6-jre does not work?

No good, 64 browsers cannot use the 32 bit java plug-in, not even if you use nspluginwrapper. The solution in this case is called openJDK, which has a 64 bit plug-in that has worked well enough for me so far.

This sounds familiar. You went back (again?) to 64 bit? http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=31494

Code:
aptitude install icedtea-gcjwebplugin
Works for me on x86_64 machines.

Regards.
