All right. I just tested it on the 5.5 Release and it fails, because of missing
class. The rendering sub-system requires the Java advanced imaging and
I guess there is no port for openjdk jet.
Because this exception is thrown from a geotools renderer class all
installations that requires geotools would fail. Could anybody confirm
my point of view?
