As a follow up to this I have removed the link /usr/bin/java and done
/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java
/usr/java/default/bin/java 1 the one downside to this is that it doesn't
give a indication of what version it is. Am I better to use the binaary
installs and then configure alternatives ?
