No, what needs to be added to the document is instructions on how to use
the alternatives facility to get these links set up properly.

I can understand how Karl or anyone else might be led to fix these
things up by hand, as above, but it's better to use the tool designed
for the job.  But in order to do so, one needs to know what that tool
is.  It's not as common knowledge as it ought to be.

man alternatives
Do you think this manual page will help someone who doesn't have a jpackage-style installation or compat package? What is needed is for that to be included in the disto. Or at least full documentation on all of the symlinks needed to construct one by hand.
if this were the military, you just volunteered to do it.

I'd really like to know why the jpackage project appears to have given up on fedora. If the experts can't do it - or have reasons not to, there's not much hope for anyone else.

I would like to know what a jpackage is. It is a project to do what? Showing my lack of understanding on something important to java I expect.
