There was recent interest in configuring a build box against OpenJDK 7 (no interest has been shown in OpenJDK 6). I would recommend catching up with Ben on this subject (as he seems to be the only community member with hardware to donate for the activity). We could also talk to SAC and see if they would be willing to run a "jenkins" build box?

Hi Jody,

There have been talks around here about selection of OpenJDK version. It 
seems that version 6 is default in Xubuntu but on the other hand version 
7 is more compatible with oracle-jdk 7 since they share the code base.

I want to make a motion to move to OpenJDK 7 for the next alpha3 build 
and see how this works out. It seems that Java based projects will have 
to move to 7 at some point in the future anyway...
