To install and run Sun Java on F8 look at the simplified instructions on this site;

You don't need to remove anything before installing Sun Java. JEdit should work with icedtea anyway.

Some of the things the page says are wrong. But it will be easy now with sim links to use the right java and jedit will work. By the way, I tried it with icedtea and it did not work at ALL!
What is wrong with the document?

specifically, nothing, generally, you are really only plucking the low
hanging fruit of a i386 install with emphasis on getting functional use
of the sun java plugin running in Firefox.

If someone has ambitions beyond that, your instructions are of little
value. We have already covered this ground.

The document does set up the new java to work with firefox I think. The step to make the new java work with a terminal is missing but I found it. See later message.
