  -SOURCE LICENSE for the Java 2 Platform Standard Edition.  Note that you

  -use the resulting JDK to compile programs for distribution unless they
  -pass Sun's compatiblity tests. In short don't use the resulting JDK
  -except for your personal use.</para>

  +Make a symbolic link to the file in that directory from your plugins directory.

  +<para>The j2sdk package contains Sun's java development environment.
  +This is useful for developing java programs and provides the runtime
  +environment necessary to run java programs.  It also includes a plug-in
  +for browsers so that they can be java aware.</para>
  +The JDK comes in two flavors, a precompiled binary and a source package. The
  +precompiled binary is linked against gcc2 libraries. Due to the incompatibilities
  +between gcc2 and gcc3, the precompiled java plugin causes problems when gcc3
  +compiled packages (for example mozilla) try to load the java plugin.
  +The source package requires registration at the Sun developer site and accepting
  +the Sun Community Source License.
  +The source code cannot be downloaded from some countries, so for users
  +from those countries, the binary may be the only option.
  +<para>Even if you plan on compiling the jdk source, you will need to download
  +the binary version to bootstrap the jdk build.
  +Follow the above link to download both source and binary packages. When
  +downloading the source also download the mozilla headers package available at
  +the same location.
  +<para>Download the patches for j2sdk source from <ulink url="&ffile-root;"/>

  +hint for detailed information at <ulink url=""/>.
