ah, I see what your getting at. Wont work, the sun binaries have an
internal licence viewer/acceptance mechanism which gentoo uses. For
some reason the version I am trying to install doesnt work through
gentoo, but 1.6 does. However, I cheated and manually installed it and
configured the plugin - suns java test page tells me I have the right
version so tomorrow I'll have another go at accessing the brain dead
oracle forms stuff at work ...
