Please update title to say [LTC 6.0 FEAT] 201250:Java5 SR9 for RHEL6
Updating title to reflect that SR9 is currently available on developerworks.
I believe this should be reassigned to releng to pull the packages in that we already make available asynch.

The JTC (JIM) website shows SR10 as latest java available now. Please let us know which SR level Red Hat will be picking up, so that we start testing same Java on current RHEL6 build.

At this point in time, please test and put in SR10 as that is what is available.
