I need instructions or a link to instructions to install java for the Firefox in Oracle's Unbreakable Linux 5.7 64 bit.  The instructions I've found have all been for 32 bits.

Instructions for Java are here at the Oracle site, they are only about 32 bit browsers as far as I can see. Is your browser 64 or 32 bit?

Thanks, it's 64 bit though.  I've not been able to find anything for 64 bit either.

I'm afraid it's not supported (yet):

64-bit support for Java Plug-in software is currently not available.
For 64-bit versions of Solaris OS, Linux, and Windows, support is for 32-bit browsers only.

Found here - scroll down all the way.

@ind_selva: did you verify that the link you provide has a working solution? To me it looks a bit outdated and the post ends with some errors.
