Just notice

/etc/alternatives/javaws -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/javaws

change to 7 works.

If you're going to use Oracle Java, I would suggest this:


   I've been using this for several years and it works flawlessly. The
major problem people have is setting the alternatives correctly. This
method does just that, in spades. There is a java version 8 as well,
but I am staying with version 7 a bit longer. You will enjoy this!
Plus, you get version updates automagically. It really doesn't get
any better. I just tried your link, and it fired up the first time.

Note that the Debian package java-package allows to create your own Oracle
Java debbals.

Will it set all the alternatives? That can be an major issue. Ric

The created debballs set up alternatives apparently: on my box:

mybox$ update-alternatives --display javaws

Current 'best' version is '/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/javaws'.

Right, but I meant all the other java alternatives. There are a bunch of them:

ControlPanel, appletviewer, extcheck, idlj, jar, jarsigner, java, java-vm, javac, javadoc, javafxpackager, javah, javap, javaws, jcmd, jconsole, jdb, jexec, jhat, jinfo, jmc, jos, jrunscript, jsadebugd, jstat, jstatd, jvisualvm, keytool, the mozilla plugin which links to libnpip2.so, native2ascii, orbd, pack200, policytool, rmic, rmid, rmiregistry, schemagan, serialver, servertool, wsgen, wsimport, xjc.

You made me look. :0 I didn't know half of these existed until I used that installer. It's just a script which will directly install Oracle Java FROM Oracle. Then after it sets everything right. I love it, as I am lazy and Andrew does a good job at it. Just a FYI, Ric
