Package: java-package
Version: 0.27
Severity: important

When using java-package for preparing a debian package with the IBM J2SDK 1.5
for powerpc tarball the postinst script does not install the Mozilla Firefox

In the postinst script I have read that plugin is only availabe for i386
architecture. It seems that this was true for 1.4.2 but not for 1.5.0.

I made the link from /usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-ibm/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_oji.so to
/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins, restart my Firefox and all seems to work :-)

Maybe the generated postinst script should be modified for the JDK version on
