     Excellent article !
     I've made the following modifications to it:
- replaced references to jre-u24 with u25 ( which was used in some 
places but not everywhere )
- took advantage of the fact that jre creates a symlink named "latest":

    [wolfy at wolfy ~]$ ll /usr/java/
    total 4
    lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   16 Mar  2 12:17 default -> /usr/java/latest
    drwxr-xr-x. 7 root root 4096 Mar  2 12:18 jre1.6.0_23
    lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   21 Mar  2 12:17 latest ->

which can make upgrading much easier, as future versions of jre will 
update the symlink but this will not require tweaking the alternatives
