When the developers use non Sun naming conventions, then their apps
work whether on the opensource or Sun jre.  So, developers please test
on both java runtimes.

i am spoiled by yum install and Sun does not have a repository even
though the frequent security updates necessitate it.  So i end up
having to install the Sun jre by hand on workstations.  Which one of
the solutions mentioned in this thread are proven to update a fleet of
workstations with the latest Sun jre?
