I hope your pointing to victorv with this question. I am only barely
on the fringes of the Java community, and only because I admin some
JBoss app servers and quite a few Java apps at $dayjob. And reading
over this talking point - I am not sure if it my earlier statement is
completely on topic - the talking point is referring to NetBeans, not
openjdk, though I think the same principle ('Java 6 EE spec' confusion
with java-1.6.0-sun)
