Which Java plugin package do I download?
 
I've installed both j2re-1-3-1-09 xxxx .rpm.bin and j2re-1-4-2-02 xxxx .bin. When I move the symbolic links in and out of the mozilla plugin directory and restart mozilla it sure enough thinks it has a bunch of java plugins and they seem to work at what they do. I can't seem to find the right set of plugins to run the webpage at:

www,aws,com/aws_2001/asp/single_site.asp?id=WGGNS

I put commas instead of periods because I don't have enough posts to post a URL.

I get a picture of what looks to be a piece from a jigsaw puzzle and this error message when I click on the puzzle piece.

"This page contains information of a type (application/x-java-vm) that can only be viewed with the appropriate Plug-in."

Can anybody tell me what exact plugin I need to see that webpage as an animated display of temperature, wind direction, etc.? I've tried two different plug-in's from sun and don't seem to be getting what I need.

I am using j2re1.4.1 I think the file I used was j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin

then I created a link to where I unpacked the file (/downloads) so in /usr/local/mozilla I have a link that looks like:
javaplugin_oji.so -> /downloads/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so

I was able to view my local weather station at the Jr. High...

I'll try that. Thanks, Blinker_Fluid

Hey Blinker_Fluid. My java plugin directory had several subdirectories. My mozilla link was posted to the wrong one. I pointed it to one that had _oji.so instead of just .so. Thanks for the explicit instructions, my weather works now, too.
