Hi Martijn, Mario

Many thanks for the response. As mentioned in my other email, the Ops 
team at my current gig have agreed to build the OpenJDK 8 for Cent OS 
6.5, and so I'll let you know how this goes :-)

Any problems and I'll look into the Iced Tea packages and/or build it 
myself (courtesy of Mani's instructions)

Best wishes,
