That is my goal, too. I'd KILL for all of those advantages, so I'm not 
blind to that issue at all. Like I said, I haven't tried compiling, 
running the server and client using OpenJDK 7, which has just recently 
appeared. I have it installed. I also have Java-7-Oracle installed as 
well. When I get it tested out, hopefully this week since I just 
installed 11.10 cleanly, I'll clue you in on whether it worked or not.

Try this:
