I use the jre-1_5_0.uci extension from the repo without problems.
Newer versions of java will not work with the old firefox on earlier dsl versions (I tried to get java-1-6 working, until firefox-1 docs revealed it will not work with that version). Also, I have a feeling newer java will not work with firefox-2.0 (Bon Echo) either but I'm not sure.
Most apps that use java will look in /opt for it, but it is not in PATH by default I don't think.
So to see the java version, invoke with the full path:
|Code Sample |
| /opt/jre1_5_0/bin/java -version|
I don't think there is any such option as "-V".
