Default How to upgrade from java6 to java7 on 10.04?

Firefox popped up a warning yesterday that Java6 had security problems
and should be upgraded to Java7. I googled upgrading to Java7 and found
various answers ranging from giving step by step manual instructions to
recommending using ppa/webup8.


My concern is they all seemed to focus on installing Java7 but I didn't
see anything about upgrading. What happens to my Java6 installation?

Just looking for a smooth, hassle free way to get secure java running again.

Thanks, Jim

I use:
Script (JRE only)

Only supports Oracle (Sun) Java 7 JRE (which covers the needs of 99 % of
all computer users). It pulls the packages from Oracle's website and
installs them, comparable to the way Adobe Flash Player is being
installed. Plus it adds a dedicated repository, from which you'll
receive updates automatically.

http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php?t=en

Java 7 works fine with Firefox, but as a heads-up it does not with
SeaMonkey:
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754622>
[[linux] Sun Java jre1.7.0_04/_05 does not work in SeaMonkey]

You might consider just giving in and installing openjdk & icetea instead.

I use that PPA and love it. Plus, they update the script every so often
so you get the latest upgrade to version 7. It directly downloads the
file from Oracle. So what you are installing is a script. That will do
the dnloading from Oracle. From what I observed, Java 7 deals better
with multi-cores, out of the box. Ric

This looks to be exactly what I need. I was wondering about the sun
java 6 I had installed but the website says the script will remove it.

I have always liked Seamonkey but finally had to stop using it because
some sites I use on a regular basis just would not work fully when I was
using it.

I use jEdit so that's not a good option for me. There have been
problems reported using them with jEdit and the devs only support it on
the Sun version. (which I fully understand)


Thanks, Jim

OK I started the process using the Repository option.

I added deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all using Software Sources
from the system menu, then tried to import the gpg key:


~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 5CB26B26
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring
--secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name
/etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 5CB26B26

gpg: requesting key 5CB26B26 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error

I've tried it a couple of times with the same result. Does this look
like a temporary problem that will clear up or something else?


Thanks, Jim

I just tried it again some 2 hours later and it worked, so it was temporary

It seemed to work well. At first I couldn't access the key server but
that cleared up after a couple of hours. The only other thing was the
plugin did not work at first. The log said it was installed but I found
a broken symlink pointing to the old plugin. Once that was fixed it
seems to be working fine.

Great! Enjoy Java 7! Before I upgraded I checked my cores and only 1 was
carrying the load of our java project. When I went to 7 I checked again
and found 3 cores being used. I was much happy and got better FPS rates
as well. Ric
