I have no trouble running Java on my Debian system. I download the jdk
from Sun, throw it in /usr/local and run. BTW, I do the same for Apache
and several other programs too. I appreciate Debian for the overall
OS and environment, but even if I was using Windows, RedHat, or even
Solaris! I would still download Apache, JServ, the jdk, and other things
and install them myself. Maybe a JVM in the debian package system with
dependencies and java other programs and all that is a nice goal (and the
reason why I stay on this list), but I would object to any stating it's
not possible to develop Java on Linux (even Debian Linux) today.
