Not gonna happen in 10.2.


Why not?

I know that you can get it from SUN, but with that installer you can
not get it to run properly on SUSE linux.

Java is one of the most important platforms... Personally, I moved
development of some things to windows because of this. I know it's
SUN's fault that the installer can not install it to SUSE properly
(meaning that it works for all users and not just to the one that
installed it), but knowing who to blame doesn't help. Bottom line is
that if it's not available fro SUSE, then it's not. :-(
