I'm sorry you had family issues; I know how that is, as I have five children.  
But I endeavor to not do e-mail when the situation is that stressful.

Well, F8 ships two different Java's by default: gcj (the pretty minimal one 
that doesn't work with jedit, as you found out) 1.5, and then IcedTea,  which 
is kindof a Sun Java (read the Iced Tea pages to find out why I say that; 
suffice to say that IcedTea, built on the OpenJDK source code from Sun, is 
what Sun Java 1.7 is possibly going to look like; in other words, like many 
things in Fedora, IcedTea 1.7 is experimental) 1.7.

As John Summerfield said, in another thread, if you want something stable in 
that regards, get CentOS 5 and install the very easily installed Sun Java on 
it.  I have a CentOS 5 box here, and it is rock solid, and it's in 
production.  I use Fedora for my own laptop, and my own desktop (so I can do 
some SecondLife stuff (yes, work stuff, but I can't be more specific due to 
NDA)), but that's all.  Mission critical servers that I have are still 
running CentOS 4, not even 5.

In short, jedit does not work with gcj 1.5, but does with IcedTea 1.7.
