Sorry, but I don't understand that argument. I want to compile a package
against /opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source-java. So I would like
to add the binary packages from there as a sort of "build repository". In the
same way as SUSE adds all the distro versions like Fedora Core, Debian etc.

build won't need the Source RPM of java while building my RPM, but only the
binary one. So why do I have to build Java first?

It's actually not really a problem for me as I just added the needed 30 Java
packages to my home repository finally. But it was definitely a waste of
build server power, bandwith, storage and finally time...
