We don't write it, we just build it and make sure it links up correctly
compared to upstream.

Now how do I get one that works under Sun java?  And is there

Not from Red Hat (wrt sun java) ... they did use tomcat and gcj.  If you
want sun java, I imagine you would have to change the specs and rebuild.
  I have no idea how to do that (I have not looked at it at all).

You COULD get the OOo2 suite from the openoffice.org website ... that
gets rid of the tomcat issues.

Eclipse ... not sure.
