I believe that the decision to change JVM (be it vendor or version) is a 
major decision especially in a production environment. Having to use a 
different jar file for the database would be relatively minor concern 
given the level of proving that would be done with the new JVM.

Add to that if someone is upgrading JVM version there is a good chance 
they are also going to upgrade database version as well, which would be 
a different jar anyway.
