Sun Java Packages for Debian and Ubuntu

Sun now allows redistribution of Java by Linux and Open-Solaris distributions.

As a result of this move, there are now packages of Sun’s Java for Debian and Ubuntu.
The packaging code is largely based on the code we are using for Blackdown Java for some years. The code is available under the MIT license from the jdk-distros project on java.net. (More info on Tom Marble’s blog.)

I’m glad Sun finally opens Java up a bit after years of restrictive licensing.
