Does Ubuntu come with its own Java? How do I access it and how do I plug and Play it on the browser? Is there any sep-by step download and configation of the java if it does not come with Ubuntu.

Ubuntu comes with an open source implementation of Java called GCJ (GNU Complier for Java.) This ought to be enough for most Java applications.

You can install the official Java VM by following the steps in this article: http://www.javadesign.info/SystemsHardware...-java-on-ubuntu
