yum install java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin

restart browser and test


(that's it)

I'm not sure what versions this is available for.

seems to work great for me!

I can't believe that they have a 64 bit java applet now :cool:

This isn't the Sun Java applet since that isn't 64-bit clean yet. It is the GCJ java applet using Iced Tea. You might want to test to make sure this runs on all the places using a applet or report issues to bugzilla otherwise.

this also passed the sun java test from java.com, I do have some java enabled apps I plan on testing with this, I will certainly report any issues I have.

I have tried the java test site and it works , I have also tested on a couple of sites and it seems good :cool:

I can't tell you how happy I am I won't have to (fingers crossed) use a 32 bit browser to get java functionality

wow, Linux sure has come a long way!!

this is great!

Well, for me GCJ is slow and incomplete. May be Open Java will be the best option.
