Java JVM: GNU libgcj versus Sun

it seems that by default Ubuntu is deployed with GNU libgcj as a Java JVM.
However I encountered few applications that do not work with it (ie. Oxygen
XML Editor, MagicDraw UML, it seems Eclipse too..) which I corrected by
specifying to each of these applications to use the Sun JVM previously
installed manually ('manually' meaning as opposition to 'packaging').
- is it possible to remove the GNU libgcj package(s) under Ubuntu (I use
Kubuntu Dapper 6.06) ?
- if yes : which package(s) should be removed ?
Note: prerequisites of removal are:
- Sun JVM installed
- environment setups completed (PATH..etc..)
- .. other ?
