AFAIK java-plugin is the same as java-icedtea-plugin

look for your self:

# yum search icedtea
java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin.i586 : IcedTea Web Browser Plugin

java-1.7.0-icedtea-devel.i586 : IcedTea Development Environment
java-1.7.0-icedtea-javadoc.i586 : IcedTea API Documentation
java-1.7.0-icedtea-demo.i586 : IcedTea Demos
java-1.7.0-icedtea-src.i586 : IcedTea Source Bundle
java-1.7.0-icedtea.i586 : IcedTea Runtime Environment
java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin.i586 : IcedTea Web Browser Plugin
java-1.7.0-icedtea.i586 : IcedTea Runtime Environment

# yum install java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin
