PostPosted: Fri Dec 12, 2008 12:25 pm    Post subject: Java 64-bit plugin from sun in 6u12 [closed] Reply with quote

FINAL EDIT:
As the ebuild has hit the official portage tree, I consider this thread outdated.



Below the original message(s):
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi. Sun just provided an early access binary for java 6u12 which includes a 64bit plugin for web browsers. Anyone tried that? I'm curious and can't try myself at the moment (still at work) if it really works...
http://download.java.net/jdk6/

EDIT:
Abstract for those who don't want to read the whole thread:
- JDK and JRE packages are available from the link above
- The plugin (for amd64) is called libnpjp2.so not libjavaplugin_oji.so
- Symlink libnpjp2.so to use the plugin in firefox, read https://jdk6.dev.java.net/plugin2/#INSTALLATION
- Ebuild: https://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/java/export/7270/java-experimental/dev-java/sun-jdk/sun-jdk-1.6.0.12_beta2.ebuild by geki

EDIT 2:
Beta 3 is available from sun, for changes see: http://download.java.net/jdk6/6u12/promoted/b03/changes/jdk6uN-b03.html
To emerge beta 3, rename the ebuild for beta2 and change DATE inside the ebuild to "22_dec_2008".

EDIT 3:
6u12 left the beta state yesterday (https://jdk6.dev.java.net/), hopefully it will hit the official portage tree soon...

you can find versions 1.7 and 1.8 in the experimental branch, maybe they support these applets

PostPosted: Fri Dec 12, 2008 5:18 pm    Post subject: where would it be ? Reply with quote

I have trouble finding a 64bit browser plugin in this latest snapshot.

I got both the jdk and the jre, eg. jdk-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.bin and jre-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.jar and unpacked them:

Code:
$ sh jdk-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.bin

unpacks locally after agreeing the EULA
Code:
$ unzip jre-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.jar
$ java -jar jre-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.jar

asks graphically for install dir and unpacks there.

I suppose in both cases the plugin should be in the jre*/plugin directory ?

It is not there, so where would it be ?

Seems the plugin is NOT included in the amd64 package while it IS included in the 32bit package.
Oh Sun, oh sun! I can't believe it!

For me icedtea did emerge without a problem. It's in the java-overlay which can be managed with layman.
1) emerge layman (if not already merged)
2) add java-overlay
3) emerge icedtea6
4) eselect icedtea as java-nsplugin
5) works (hopefully), if not have a look at the icedtea-thread in the forum

Are there ebuilds for these versions? If yes, where can I find them? In a portage overlay?

I have been using openjdk-bin and have gotten rid of sun-jdk and emul-java for good. Works fine here, both the plugin and java itself.

How is OpenJDK different from IcedTea? I thought IcedTea is packaging OpenJDK but has to use a different name due to trademark reasons.

That's right.

I did not say it was different. I said I am using that and its working fine. I pointed it out because it is better to install that and get rid of sun-jdk and emul-java for good. Now, I have only one JDK in the system for java needs and firefox plugin needs. If you want to know how, just follow the link I gave.

The plugin in question is jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so. Symlink this to /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/javaplugin.so and the plugin works!
see https://jdk6.dev.java.net/plugin2/#INSTALLATION

A jdk package is available for 6u12 which does include the plugin: http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u12/promoted/b02/binaries/jdk-6u12-ea-bin-b02-linux-amd64-08_dec_2008.bin. (Or am I confusing something?)

Furthermore, this package contains a working javaws executable. Until now I always got the error message "javaws is not available for sun-jdk-1.6 on x86_64", but this version works fine. :)

I cannot seem to find it in there...

The i586 package has
Code:
jdk1.6.0_12/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
jdk1.6.0_12/jre/lib/i386/libjavaplugin_jni.so

The amd64 one hast the latter one too, but that's _not_ the browser plugin..

EDIT: Wahoo I spoke too soon, there is a plugin2 in there.. jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so \o/

Here goes some modified ebuild: http://gimpel.ath.cx/svn/gimpel/dev-java/sun-jdk/ - it's not even in package.use.mask for >= .12_beta2 already.
Code:
# eselect java-nsplugin list
Available 32-bit Java browser plugins
Available 64-bit Java browser plugins
  [1]   icedtea6
  [2]   sun-jdk-1.6-plugin2  current


Let's see if it's better than IcedTeaPlugin.. :)

EDIT2: Hell, it works perfect. I tested the interactive map on map24.com (doesn't work with icedtea), and that wicked http://www.musicexplorer.org thingy (no chance with icedtea either)
