sure, and moved!
Can you give us more details on what packages need JDK, and which JDK?
I'd like to understand what is going on, which packages are not ported
to Centosplus yet and why.
There are bits of jboss and mod_jk stuff form rhwas4as that need the
java stuff.
Do we have to build (compile) JDK?
if you want to, but considering its unlikely we will get the sources for
1.5.x jdk, I'd say we might need the route of nosrc.rpm instead :)
Can't we use JPackage.org's and give users instructions on how to
install and enable their repository?
Maybe thats possible ( I know at least the mysql-jdbc package has its
origins in jpp ) , would you like to take this effort on ?

Jim and HughesJr have been looking at the rhwas stuff, if you are
interested in taking this up, maybe we can start a wiki page with details.

    Talking about JPackage, besides the JDK, there are *lots* of other packages
    there, some of them only in SRPM by now, some of them not usable yet
    (1.7bis beta). For sure they have been making a good work, and of
    course it is
    desirable that JPackage 1.7b (or whatever version) goes stable so that we
    have something that is very usable (enterprise/stable).

    If RHWAS needs packages that are provided by JPackage (is this the case?),
    and JPackage provides a great diversity of packages for the Java world,

    I'd like to rise a discussion on this:

    - how to provide a healthy/enterprise/[reasonably community supported] Java
    environment on CentOS
    - if packaging by ourselves is interesting
    - if we could get more engaged on JPackage (or make our own JPackage
    modified version)
    - if it is interesting to make a QA team for the Java Ecosystem on CentOS,
    because of its importance

    What do you thing? What is your opinion?

    Maybe Jim, HughesJr and Karanbir can also speak on this :-)

    Thanks
    Leonardo
