Hullo there.

Is there an update-alternatives target that switches *everything* from
one Java version to another? It seems that I have to switch java, javac,
javah, jar, javadoc, java_vm etc etc all individually to move from on
installed version to another. And of course some programs are not in all
versions - stuff that's new to 1.5 or 1.6 or whatever.

I ran "update-alternatives --all" and could see no plausible target. Am
I missing something?

Regards, K.
