i seldom use java, but i tested it in microcore from 3.0 until 3.6 with openoffice and minefield and it worked well.
now with core 4.4 i use libreoffice3.5.scm, icecat and minefield9, and the sun-jre.tcz doesn't seem to work anymore.
it's the same with sun-jre7.tcz, openjdk-7-jre.tcz, openjdk-6-jre.tcz.
in libreoffice3.5, under the menue options, no ondemand installed java-jre is shown,
in the browsers the typical java testpages don't show a working java-environment.
actually i don't need java on a daily base, but i'm just curious whether the java-packages of the repository are still working and perhaps which packages you successfully use with which configurations!?
thank you for your replies and hints.
