Bad news : diablo jdk is not supported anymore
Good news : openjdk works like a charm!
(some guys here even can run applets, i did some tests myself but some applets failed)

However, applets is not the issue here. Openjdk works very well, i have run Jboss on openjdk6-b23
quite some time with very good performance in comparison with a "big" linux box.
