If you install any of java/jdk13 java/jdk14 java/diablo-jre13 or
java/diablo-jdk13 you will find at least:


[The latest jdk14 port also has:


Choose which JDK/JRE you want, and whichever version of the plugin you
prefer -- the '_g' suffix means unstripped, debug code included -- and
make a sym-link to it from /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins:

    # cd /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins
    # ln -s ${JAVA_HOME}/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

(Note that the java/jdk13 and java/jdk14 ports require you to jump
through hoops in order to download the source code in order to comply
with Sun's licensing terms.  They're also fairly huge compilation jobs
to install them.)

If you install or re-install mozilla and you have the java/jdk13 port
already installed it will create such a symlink automatically.

Anyhow, fire up mozilla and check that it has registered the plugin
using the 'about:plugins' URL.
