Hi Kris,

According to the reply from the icedtea-web maintainer I received
below, the existing icedtea-web plugin might "just work" with
openjdk7, or it might need a change to the icedtea-web Makefile. Here
is the reply I received from the icedtea-web port maintainer:


The latest IcedTea-Web is 1.2.1. ;-)

Anyway, I haven't tried it myself but I *think* it may just work with
OpenJDK7 already.  It lacked one IcedTea patch but it was already
committed to upstream:


Deinstall OpenJDK6, install OpenJDK7, and try this:

- --- java/icedtea-web/Makefile.orig
+++ java/icedtea-web/Makefile
@@ -21,7 +21,7 @@
 USE_JAVA=      yes
 JAVA_OS=       native
 JAVA_VENDOR=   openjdk
- -JAVA_VERSION=        1.6
 USE_XORG=      x11



I think that change may need to be made to the icedtea-web port built
with the openjdk7 PBI. I guess we'll just have to wait a few days for
the openjdk7 PBI to attempt its rebuild and see what happens.
