I am afraid that most of these problems are caused by stupid developers 
who are using (against all advices they were given) com.sun.* classes 
(which I am said is the most common source of problems). There is no 
protection against stupid programmers, I am afraid.

While I am looking over the shoulder of my JBoss colleague sitting next 
to me, I don't see much problems (of course, bugs happen) with running 
even so large application as JBoss AS on OpenJDK.

Also, on the theme of stupid programmers, see (although I am not 
sure where the stupidity lies in this issue).
