Firebird needs jre1.4.2 or later.
Create a folder in /usr/local then download into it the latest self
extracting jre form Sun.
Run the self extracting archive you just downloaded. (root required)
Create a sym link for the plugin;
.so /path to firebird plugin folder/libjavaplugin_oji.so
(Note: Its the ns610-gcc32 plugin)
If you leave it like this firebird will crash. You need to run the
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java Java
Firebird should now play ball with Java
