What's the problem with unstable...? IMHO, it's stable.

I don't know about JDK1.2.2 on potato (mine is frozen), but anyway...
I got the JDK from www.blackdown.org; the distribution is basically a
tarball. Installation is pretty simple:
tar xvfz /your/download/dir/of/jdk*z
put JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jdk1.2.2 in /etc/profile
create links for the executables:
ln -s /usr/lib/jdk1.2.2/bin/java java
(do the same for the other executables)
ps: of course, it's much more (unnecessary) complicated compared to:
apt-get install jdk-1.2.2 :-)
