you can still use josm with Sun's Java if you set JAVA_HOME accordingly
or run josm with
JAVACMD= /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/bin/java josm
There are currently many packages that provide java2-runtime, and josm
only works with few of them. That's why i prefer keeping the dependency
on openjdk and switch back to a virtual dependency as soon as we either
have better virtual packages for java runtimes or have the bugs fixed
that prevents josm from running with other javas.
