I've noticed that many of the answers for this thread suggest to avoid the
blackdown. Any justification for that? 

The reason I'm asking is that I asked a similar question a while ago, and
got a suggest to use blackdown. I was just about to give it a try.

Here are the quotes from the original suggest:

| I am using blackdown j2re1.4, it works.

| the blackdown j2re1.4 works perfectly fine, but it's not DFSG free software
| due to licensing conditions imposed by Sun.
| There are other projects to create a real free software java platform, but
| they are not finished yet.
| [...]
| The sun system is a reasonable alternative, but if I understand correctly it's
| essentially the same as the blackdown system anyway, blackdown port java to
| linux for Sun (and us).  And it's packaged for debian...
