I wasn't asking whether there's an official Debian package
for the Sun Java. I knew that's impossible exactly for the reason
you explain. What I was asking was whether there are _free_ Java
components usable as a browser plugin and if there are, which Debian
package contains them.
Well, I didn't explicitly say that, but I mentioned the standard Debian
way, which usually means that you use official _free_ Debian packages
Thanks for your response, anyway.
