Taking 2 facts into account:

Security holes will be used earlier or later // DLJ is not availble any longer.

The logic behind ? If it's not upgradeable via package-Managment it has to be removed from the partner repository. I think a careful evaluation and consideration should be taken into account.

The remaining options are OpenJava or manual installation of Sun-Java
