64-bit GNU/Linux Java and web browsers

I just found out that konqueror calls the java interpreter directly, and therefore, doesn’t care that SUN isn’t shipping a 64-bit web browser plugin… I am now able to use Remedy and Webct Vista from my Ubuntu desktop, without having to run a 32-bit chroot, or using a Windows VM instance. :)

Settings->Configure Konqueror…->Java&Javascript

Set ‘Path to Java executable’ to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.08/bin/java, (if you are using the sun-java5-* packages).
