Thanks for your reviewing. I have the same doubts about JAI and dependent
software. That would require moving openjump in contrib in order to have
it updated to current 1.3 with raster support. 
I would also add that currently OsGeo incubation for OpenJump has been 
stalled because proejct team has not the energy
to follow up OsGeo requirements. Note that OpenJump is also a pre-requirement
for Degree (currently an OsGeo project) AFAIK, which renders the whole thing 
quite weird.

Currently OpenJump 1.0 is almost usable, but it has a few problems with some
menu entries that cause some non fatal exceptions and usual ipv6 problem.
I wonder if we have still to support it as is.
