apt-get install Java, what's right package name?


I succeeded in installing Java 5 downloaded from Sun's site. However, I'd like to use Ubuntu packaged Java to be able to use web start in Firefox. For some reason all possible combinations I can find on net bring me to situation no such package. Is Java packaged with Ubuntu (Besides Gnu Java 1.4)?

Sun Java is proprietary, so it's not going to be like normal packages in the repositories. However, there is an easy way to convert the Sun download into a .deb package using java-package, described here.

Alternately, you can install Blackdown's Java 1.4 using apt-get, described here
