Chrome and Java: a countdown to nonoperativity?
article #802, updated 708 days ago

The latest stable version of Chrome does not support Java by default. Oracle has a tweak, but it did not work:

I have read in other resources of a combination of tweaks, the above plus one or two more, which may work. Regardless, this does not bode well for Java under Chrome in the short and mid-term. Oracle will either create a Chrome-standard add-on quickly, or Chrome will run Java only with overrides left in for “advanced” users, and will become entirely non-Java-compatible in September:

Sun Java in Linux
article #280, updated 2167 days ago

Use the RPM Sun gives, for 1.6.0/24. But you’ll need libnpjp2.so instead of the old ones (there are two old ones), and the ‘alternatives’ system works. More here soon.
