Read the following mail and the answers of it:

The problem is, in GNU Classpath existing a Swing-Demo, which runs on a lot of JVMs using GNU Classpath, but which don't run on Suns JVMs...

So, is the bug in Suns Java implementation or the implementation of GNU Classpath?

An other point is the license of the Demos in Suns JDK.
Is it possible, that Sun put the demos under a real OpenSource license?

of the license of Suns Demos, makes the license to a non-OpenSource license. And so Suns Demos are also not OpenSource.
