Which means? Do I have to solve it or are you willing to solve it? It is 
of course silly of me not to keep legal agreements I have signed, but as 
Leo pointed out, is Sun not anymore requiring an NDA for other people to 
get access to the JDK source code.

I do of course not remember anything of any source code I had in my 
hands ten years ago. I even quite often forget in the afternoon what I 
did before lunch. I am not sure however, if Sun's lawyers believe that 
and I rather don't want to find out.
