You can certainly get jdk1.3.1 from Blackdown, and this works with the
Tomcat 4.0.4 in Woody/Sarge and also (as I found out in the last few
days) with Tomcat 4.1.24 in Unstable.

I use the following apt sources.list line for JDK

deb ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/java/debian woody main non-free

I believe Blackdown has a 1.4 JDK availale.


The problems with Debian and Java have mostly to do with the way Sun
licenses certain parts of the Java specification etc.....
