« on: November 29, 2016, 07:50:04 AM »
Hi,
i have installed openjdk-7-jre.tcz (version 8 created problems with an app) and need the plugin for firefox but can't find the so-file. Where is it or which package i need to install too? Thanks.

It was removed in Java 7 IIRC.

Install Java 6? Or perhaps the binary Java 7 from Oracle still has it even if openjdk does not.

Oracle's latest Java 8 still provides the Firefox Java plugin, no need to use an outdated version. There are already enough security risks, especially if used in a workplace. JRE8 was recently tested to install and work in dCore using the dCore-java-installer command, which creates a nice SCE extension and Firefox plugin:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:dcore-java-installer_command

It probably wouldn't be too hard to manually create a TCZ instead, or modify the script, pasted below. Just manually download the JRE and follow steps from ~ cd "$UNPACKDIR" onward. Once created i think it was self-contained and didn't require any dependencies.

Oracle's JRE8 can be downloaded here:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html
jre-8u112-linux-i586.tar.gz

The download contains the precious libnpjp2.so file, but if IIRC during dCore testing the entire JRE needed to be installed, maybe YMMV.

Of course this assumes you're okay using Oracle's software.

A java plugin may only be temporary and likely not required soon.  According to Mozilla, after March 2017 the only plugin allowed will be Flash, likely the latest v24+ currently in beta.
Firefox is likely getting a makeover, real soon.
