Install sun java 1.6 update 30 and browser plugin on openSUSE 12.1

Reactions: 
 Due to licensing issues openSUSE had to drop sun java from its repositories starting from openSUSE 12.1 onwards . Hence you need to install it from user maintained or community repositories . Only OpenJDK is offered in official repositories
Install Java
Based on the architecture the relevant package must be installed.You need  to install two packages:-
==>JRE or Java Run-time Environment is needed for executing jars or running class files on your system.Some application software like openoffice / libreoffice  need this to work properly.
==>Browser plugin is used to run applets on your browser
          We can install both JRE and browser Plugin using the 1-Click Install/One-Click for plugin as YaST will automatically detect that JRE is also required.You can also locate other 1-Clicks for Sun Java Plugin here
Important Note:- You may need to type in admin password / passcode when prompted.You may also need to click "accept" / "Trust" when it prompts for accepting  the repository key. Since we are using  1 click for plugin ,the installer /YaST will ask you to upgrade / install JRE also, you may need to allow the up-gradation of JRE.
Check Installation
Check version of Java/Jre in system
If you are looking to test your installation then you need to open the terminal
an execute the command "java -version"
Check version of Java plugin browser uses
To check browser plugin Navigate here or here
If the installation is successful you must see something like this :-
Run or Execute jar files
If you looking for launching (or) running jar files then ,look here
