I have quite a few issues with the default OpenJdk package on CentOS
5.4 x86_64 (e.g. crash of Eclipse , 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 , so I am considering using a more recent version of the
(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  but they date back from July 2008
and are b09 whereas current is b16.
Thanks in advance for any hints!
