Yup, I was just trying to be peculiar about the requirements. It speaks
about using Sun JDK, it's not the only JDK that exists, there's also Open
JDK and IBM JDK. I'm asking this because the recommended one is the Open
JDK (this is what you'll get if trying to install javac for example), not
the Sun JDK. There are ways to specify dependencies as variants. If Open
JDK is a valid option, there's a much better chance someone already has it
installed. On the contrary, if Open JDK is known to cause problems, and
isn't meant to work with the SDK, then the package should deal with it and
specify the known conflict, so that whoever installs it, would be prompted
to decide to remove or backup the JDK they are using before installing.

But then possibly the legal issues must come first.

By the way, there are SDK variants available for download today from Adobe:
Adobe SDK, Open Source SDK. Is it possible that the content of OSS SDK can
be made into a standalone package? I imagine that the differences don't end
in SWCs, there may be some Java libraries used, which we may not be allowed
to pack with the rest - well, I don't know, are there any?
