Firefox and java - FreeBSD

Java isn't showing up in about :plugins on Firefox. I compiled java (when I compiled OpenOffice) and here is my /etc/libmap.conf entry for it (maybe I missed something?) [/usr/local/jdk1.4.2/bin/java] libkse.so.1 libc_r.so.5 libkse.so libc_r.so...

    It doesn't show up on my laptop either; but known java features (online
    WSJ crossword puzzle) on a web page that I visit work. Try giving it a
    real-world test.

    Best of luck,

    Once I added the jdk14 port I had to create the following symlink to
    get java to work and show up in the plugins.

    ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/
    Hope this helps.

    BINGO!

    Geez! That's great - but how the HECK did you know this was the
    magic key? This shouldn't be so ARCANE!!!

    I'd have been looking for something in a "firefox" branch - in
    fact, I was just trying to find such a thing when your e-mail
    came.

    THANK YOU!!!

    Did that. Wrong search string, or missed the right page in all the
    hits.

    This now works and all, but java on FreeBSD is far from perfect. One
    of my favorite sites, [url]www.espn.com[/url], freezes when loaded in firefox
    with java enabled (try it out for yourself). I had this same issue a
    while back when I installed java on a Fbsd box.

    The firefox port wilil make that link for you, automatically, if the
    JDK is installed when you're building firefox.

    Yes, I've heard that. Sorry - my original question was how to do it
    if you installed firefox from packages instead of ports.

    This is the primary disadvantage of packages; they cannot adapt to the
    existing configuration of your system the way ports can.

    That's because the java plugin for Firefox/Mozilla/etc. is actually
    part of the /Java/ port:

    gravitas:...ports/java/jdk14:% pkg_which /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    jdk-1.4.2p7

    I agree, it is a bit arcane, but you can work out what to type by
    grovelling through the contents of /usr/ports/java/jdk14/work after
    you've built the port -- or you can be clever and find the places this
    has been discussed on various FreeBSD mailing lists before now. This
    is a good site:
