Bug filed by Hema Seetharamaiah (###@###.###)

I have installed mercury03 build on a machine running SLEC GM; Gnome
version 2.2.

In the foot menu, Java setup is listed under a separate menu called
'Other'. Since this is just a GUI that opens up for configuration, it
should ideally be along with the other capplets. 

Alternatively, this should be available under programming clearly
specifying that "Java Setup". Otherwise, it is possible for users to
expect an IDE to open up for Java.

I am transferring this bug to Java since it is not a GNOME bug.

The reason the Java Control Panel is showing up in the "Other" menu is that the file
sun_java.desktop does not adhere to the .desktop file format spec which can be found at:

http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/desktop-entry-spec/0.9.4-onehtml

The current file has a number of spaces after "Settings" in the Categories field.
These should be removed and replaced with a ';' (semi-colon) character.

The .desktop file should also be installed to /usr/share/control-center-2.0/capplets 
instead of its current location in /usr/share/applications since it is for configuration
and not an application.

This is very important for the SUN Desktop on linux as there is no way for us to work around
the problem on the GNOME side.  Please provide a fix for this in the next delivery for Mercury.

Note that the new  X-Sun-Supported extension should be appended to the Categories field
