jdk14 port usable for development?

We're mainly deploying our application on Windows, but I've also installed 
and had multiple instances running on a 4.8-STABLE machine (1.4GHz, 1GB 
RAM). The application is heavily threaded, uses JCE/JSSE a lot, and uses a 
lot of I/O classes - basically a server application that processes data, 
constructs and send files etc. It also has bundled a reasonable amount of 
third party libraries, including Jetty, JCS (Java Caching), Axis (Apache 
SOAP toolkit) and Bouncy Castle's crytpo stuff.

Its working fine with the native JDK 1.4.1 in all areas, but keytool 
appears to be taking a long time... I did have some lock-ups using JSSE, 
but I haven't seen those in a while and they may be prior to patchset 8. 
The following script eventually completes, but takes a long time and drives 
the CPU up to 100% (in reality I've got about ten or more of the following 
lines in the script). I'm not sure if this is massaging the bug below, or 
just takes a large amount of CPU/time (certainly far longer than Win32).

I haven't done any hard tests on it yet, but it 'feels' more responsive 
than the Win32 deployment at this stage ... at any rate, thats what I'll be 
telling the Sales Liars^W People :)

keytool -genkey -dname "cn=TEST, st=VIC, c=AU" -alias keytest -keystore 
test.keystore -keypass 123456 -storepass 123456 -validity 365
