I've been playing with java a little on my laptop, I have some code I 
wrote when java 1.1 was current and I used to compile with Jikes.

I discovered generics (opensuse ships Sun's JDE 1.5), and thought I'd 
try the code on a Debian box to see whether there's a realistic 
alternative to Sun/IBM Java.

If there is, Debian hasn't found it. gcj doesn't do generics, and I'm 
not going back. Nore does it recognise '-cp.'

Jikes/sable-vm doesn't match up either.
