Cannot eselect java-nsplugin to a later slot/version (dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin)

Question

The www-client/firefox 'plugin check' indicates that my Java Plugin 10.67.2 is vulnerable.

 

Currently I have dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin:1.7 (1.7.0.67) installed and eselect java-nsplugin is therefore set to oracle-jdk-bin-1.7. Looking at available packages I see that there is a 1.8 version (1.8.0.11). So I went ahead and installed this version with 

emerge --oneshot oracle-jdk-bin:1.8

eselect java-nsplugin now lists 1.7 and 1.8 however if I attempt to set 1.8 it fails with the following message

!!! Error: Usage: set [32bit or 64bit] [nsplugin-vm]
exiting

It is also worth noting that I receive a similar message if trying to set version 1.8 for eselect java-vm

!!! Error: Usage [user|system] [vm]
exiting

What am I doing wrong?  :wacko:

Thanks... all sorted, and have learnt a new eselect trick.  B)

 

As a funny side story, firefox complained about my 1.8 nsplugin as also being vulnerable!  :lol: (oracle-jdk-bin has since been updated)
