I'm using F17 with the java-1.7.0-openjdk package for Java and the icedtea-web plugin; I can log into a Webex presentation and get the Java applet up, but when I try to share my desktop in Webex, nothing happens. Some quick Googling suggests I need to use the Oracle JDK; can anyone confirm if that helps, or is there a setting I can tweak in the openjdk to get this going?

The inability to view shared desktops or to share your own desktop in Cisco WebEx has also been documented in bug#829817.

I have faced similar problems for case of some java games (Runescape example) and my internet bank also where the icedtea-web plug-in is not good enough.

Here I described how I did the java-Oracle javaplugin work for google-chrome:

I am adding to @davidva answer for the java plug-in case!

After downloading and installing the rpm from site.

create the plug-ins folder: mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins

create the symbolic link: ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_40/lib/amd64/ /opt/google/chrome/plugins

I also find out that my internet-bank is just working in firefox with oracle java plug-in. The link above describes how to make it work for that browser.

my Fedora 19 x64

or you also use /usr/java/latest/lib/amd64 for the latest java version.

I have never been able to use Webex with OpenJDK. You will have to try the Oracle package or contact Cisco to get them to fix it.
