Uhm ... sun is a company ;)
- Sun's JDKs 1.5.0 and 1.6.0 are available licensed under the DLJ, which is
not open source but re-distribution-friendly
- Version 1.7.0 will be available as OSS later this year ... right now, parts
of it are alredy available: The Virtual Machine and the Compiler. The rest
will be opened later
Summary: There is no complete Sun JDK yet!
For more info, see https://openjdk.dev.java.net/

Other parts provided by Sun are available under different licenses, which
makes it quite difficult to keep trac sometimes (as I proved an hour ago we
stating javamail is not open source ;) ).

Regards,
Daniel
