Java Oracle's Sun Java JDK packages are to be removed from the Ubuntu partner repositories and disabled on users systems. Oracle, in retiring the "Operating System Distributor License for Java," means Canonical no longer have permission to distribute the package. The change will affect Ubuntu 10.04 LTs, Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 users only. Users who have the "sun-java-6" package installed on their system will see it removed via a future software update -- the exact date of which is "TBD."

My bank uses a java-based authenticator thing that didn't handle openJDK well last time I tried, too. Oh well, I guess it's about time to see if they've fixed it. (Where "they" can be my bank or OpenJDK - either way works.)
