[CentOS] Recent Java OpenJDK RPMs

Hello,

I have quite a few issues with the default OpenJdk package on CentOS
5.4 x86_64 (e.g. crash of Eclipse [1], and now excessive permgen
memory requirement causing the JVM to freeze and requiring a kill -9).

These issues do not appear with a local build of the latest stable
IcedTea [2], so I am considering using a more recent version of the
JVM
(I am not running Red Hat certified Java apps).

Does anyone know of ongoing efforts to provide recent versions of the
JDK as (S)RPMs?

I found some in CentOS Testing [3] but they date back from July 2008
and are b09 whereas current is b16.

Thanks in advance for any hints!

Cheers,

Mathieu
