Java syntax highlighting in vim

I'm trying (hard) to get java class names highlighted in vim. I realise that that vim has java syntax highlighting built in, but the stock version doesn't highlight class names.

I've found the necessary replacement .vim files here:

The page says that to install the files java.vim and javaid.vim, i should place them in ~/.vim/syntax, which i've done.

Now when i open .java files, nothing has changed. Keywords are highlighted,but class names are not.

What am i doing wrong here?
