I don't think that we have a redistributable java available for C4.
For C5 we have the openjdk one that is used to build CDS. But without
a such a java on C4 there is not much point in building CDS for C4.
You could just build the actual server (the <brand>-ds-base package)
and use the commandline tools to manage it. But I think it isn't a
good idea to distribute only that for C4.

If someone can get openjdk working on C4 I'm open to revisited this
and started making CDS for C4.

Hoping the problem magically goes away by ignoring it is the
"microsoft approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
