Description of problem:
While IBMJava2-[JS]DK have been updated on RHN to 1.3.1-8 on AS 2.1,
they haven't been updated on ES 2.1, they are still 1.3.1-5.
This is a serious problem as a memory leak in -5 will cause WAF(/CCM)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "up2date IBMJava2-SDK" on a RHEL ES 2.1 box
Actual Results: It gets IBMJava2-SDK-1.3.1-5
Expected Results: It should get IBMJava2-SDK-1.3.1-8 instead.

he's the release engineer that handles RHEL2.1.
The updates were included in U3 but the RHBA-2003-248 was missing the WS
and ES packages. Now fixed and reissued:
