Its also based on suns source code, with some linux specific enhancements, bug
fixes and comes in debian installable form by adding this to you
deb ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.blackdown.org/java-linux/debian/ unstable
Then install : j2re1.3 j2sdk1.3 if using woody, or j2re1.4, j2sdk1.4 if using
unstable. 1.3 wont work on stable, although it will probably install, and i
dont know whether or not 1.4 works on woody.
