jdk1.1 isn't mutually exclusive with the old jdk package, so you can
install both at the same time.  I am planning on renaming the jdk
package (version 1.0.2) to jdk1.0 to reflect that.

Using update-alternatives to change the symlinks pointing to 
java, javac, javah, etc. is a pain though.  And even worse, it's
undocumented.  We need a nice package for switching those
links around.

Oops, that looks like a bug.  Nobody reported it.  I'll fix that
up this week.

I haven't uploaded newer versions yet - since I don't use them.
I don't know if they work with jdk1.1 or not.

Does anyone else want to take over javalex and java-cup?

> What is the correct combination of packages to install?

If you re-install jdk-common and jdk-static (don't purge jdk1.1-*),
then you should be able to re-install javalex and java-cup.  Hopefully,
they work with both jdk 1.0.2 and jdk 1.1.1 - if not, I'd like to 
know.

Sorry for the inconvenience...

Cheers,

 - Jim
