As a linux user a i had a problem with java where i were not able to view the Java applet applications. At last i came to knew that i need to install jre. I just come up with my installation process.

Installation instructions for the Java Runtime Environment (JRE):

Step 1: Download the jre file from the below link suitable to your Linux OS:

Step 2: Run that bin file in root terminal or command window as the below example:
sh jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Step 3: It will ask you to accept the terms and conditions. Enter YES. This will install the rpm file.

Step 4: Now, create rpm for that rpm file as:
rpm -iv jre-6u3-linux-i586.rpm

Step 5: Lets come to the browser part. Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory as the below example one:
cd .mozilla/plugins

Step 6: In the plugin directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns7/ file Type:
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_03/plugin/i386/ns7/libjava

Now you will be able to view the java applet programs.
