Epiphany with Java?

Hi everybody!

On my macmini there is FreeBSD 10 running, and I want to use Epiphany as 
my web browser. With Java. First I tried installing port java/icedtea-web, 
until I noticed, this downloads firefox, and this is not the browser I 
want to use. So I installed java/openjdk7.
    Is this sufficient? How do I find out whether java is working with 
epiphany? There is a test page: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
and this tells me: "We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed 
and enabled in your browser."
    In my browser settings I do have allowed Popup windows, activated 
Plugins and JavaScript. I do not have a firewall. So there is nothing that 
should prevent Java from working. But perhaps I need some other package or 

Hoping for your help,
