plugin does not function and not compile

P: n/a

I have a Linux machine and I use Netscape 7.1 which I upgraded from Mozilla.

I downloaded j2sdj-1.4.2_02 and I have installed the plugins as followes:

in .mozilla/plugins- directory a link to :

edward@linux:~/.mozilla/plugins> ls -l
totaal 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 72 2003-11-25 23:23 ->

Also in the "About Plugins" in Netscape I see all my plugins, however
the plugins do not function when loading/showing a page!!

This problem did not always exist, and I suspect Netscape 7.1.

However, how is it possible that "About Plugins" show the plugins !! but
they do not function:

Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2_02-b03

Also I can not compile Aplets although normal java and
Swing-programs I can compile, no problem.

To 'see' javac and java I have to add to my $PATH

Error when compiling:
edward@linux:~/java> javac
Note: uses or overrides a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details.
My questions:
- Is the dis-functioning of the plugins and the
not-being-able-to-compile-plugins related? (I think not, only
coincidence, but I am just working with Java for 1 week now so knowledge
is lacking here!)

- How can I solve those problems, should there be added more directories
to the path in order to be able to compile?

Thanks in advance, Edward Hage

About the Java plugin on Linux, read this page:

Your code is simply wrong. The error message just tells that.
