As of official http://www.opera.com/docs/linux/plugins/install/#java

Java plug-in (Sun/Oracle)

As of Opera 10.50, Opera uses the Java plug-in. Previously Opera used
the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) directly.

The installation instructions for Java on java.com are are correct,
but the configuration step is wrong. Use the following instructions

Command line instructions to locate the Sun Java plug-in, if installed:
locate libnpjp2.so, or
find / -name libnpjp2.so 2>/dev/null

If Java plug-in is not installed, or you wish to upgrade, proceed as follows:
If you require a functioning BankID, purge your system of all Java
implementations except for Sun Java. In particular, icedtea6-plugin
(including default-jre and openJDK) should be removed.
Download the Java Runtime Environment that is suitable for your system.
Follow the installation instructions, but ignore the section entitled
"Enable and Configure". In what follows, it is assumed that you have
installed Java (version 1.6.0_21) in /opt. If you have a more recent
version, or you install the plug-in elsewhere, you need to modify the
command accordingly.
So that Java will be discovered, type the following commands:
cd /usr/lib/opera/plugins
ln -s /opt/jre-1.6.0_21/usr/java/jre1.6.0_21/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

Plus, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/manual-plugin-install-linux-136395.html

So, obviously, Opera stopped catching webiced-tea plugin.

java/openjdk6 doesn't have nor option to configure nor libnpjp2.so
plugin itself.

Am I on a right way compiling java/jdk16, which has libnpjp2.so
according to configurable options (WEB "Enable the browser plugin and
Java Web Start" on)?
