That is the java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin package.
It isn't the same plugin code as the sun one since sun hasn't released their
code (yet). This is the gcjwebplugin code made to work with the openjdk code
base. We do hope it works the same, if not please do report bugs!

One known issue is that the plugin doesn't support Liveconnect, the Javascript -
Java bridge.
