Hi AN:

To enable the java plugin in firefox, please do the following:

. cd $HOME/.mozilla

. cd plugins
  (if the plugins dir doesnot exist, please create one)

. ln -s /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.6.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

. on doing ls -l, you'll see an entry look like this
  libjavaplugin_oji.so@ -> 

To check for java plugin support, you can try the following:

. start firefox 3.5
. type about:plugins in the address bar
. you should see entry like

  Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_07-b02

  File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
  Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_07

    MIME Type   Description     Suffixes    Enabled
    application/x-java-vm   Java        Yes
    application/x-java-applet   Java        Yes
    application/x-java-applet;version=1.1   Java        Yes

Hope this helps you get started with using Java on FreeBSD.
