The main reason to update Java on Hardy is that bug 6429775 (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6429775) is really fixed in it. In all other (earler) versions it is impossible to use Java with Compiz enabled.
Please, update it as quickly as you can, most of users really need this update.

I'm not one but I guess this falls under this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates

Marking as Fix Released because it is fixed in Sun (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6429775)

Changed in sun-java6:
status: New → Fix Released

Don't know how to do the patches though so I'm stopping here.

Java on Ubuntu 8.10 was upgraded to Java 6 update 10, why no Hardy?
I think It's important for many Hardy users.

Changing from 'Fix Released' back to 'Confirmed'. Current version in hardy-updates is 6-07, not 6-10.

Changed in sun-java6:
status: Fix Released → Confirmed

Tried the repository versions on Hardy (OpenJDK 6b11-2ubuntu2 and java-sun-sdk 6.07-3ubuntu2).
Tray DOES NOT WORK! Tried Java SDK 6 update 11 from Sun, works.

I just unpacked Java to /opt/... and specified JAVA_HOME, all I need works fine.

please update Sun java (jre) to the -13 update. ===>Hardy /Intrepid
There several security issue's in the earlier -updates! Why does Open Suse 11.1 update this Sun java jre -13 and Ubuntu Hardy and Intrepid not?! ( Hardy: JRE update -7!)
I unpacked java to /opt on 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Ubuntu.
