Yes, as I said in the second post to the thread.

It doesn't work, you need the icetea to generate the plugins.  There is
this:  /usr/ports/java/icedtea6-stubs  Looks promising anyways.

There is also this work around.

Java seems more pervasive than ever in the web enviro at least for sys admin
type stuff.  Today I used it to access a Proxmox install, a Lantronics
spider kvm over IP, and my girlfriend's child had a homework assignment on a
java web app that was broken due to a recent update to her XP's java

You can say all you want Java is dead, dying, and/or irrelevant.  I wish you
were right, unfortunately that's not the world many of us live in.
