OK.  I just upgraded a test system from 5.1 to 5.2 and there went all of 
my efforts to get Java working.  All those alternative commands that I 
lost track of what really worked....

So I need the JDK.  I have that installed on my main system with some 
alternatives commands that I do not remember.  I do remember (and can 
find) a thread here to help me on it, and I tried a number of different 
recommendations until things started working.  Was it the last command 
or a combination of them?

Anyway, so here comes the upgrade to firefox 3.  On my test system, Java 
was working with 1.5, and now it is not.  So I anticipate the same event 
here.  I need these Java apps working, so before I upgrade, I would like 
to know what others have found out and recommend.
