I read in the mailing list web-based aggregator the following snippet:
>> To make JavaSound completely open (and drop closed part) we need alternative

>> 2) OSS mixer (for linux/solaris, both sampled and midi).
As for a software synthesizer, I think that TiMidity++ (
http://timidity.sourceforge.net/) would be the best choice for the job.
The OSS Mixer should be PulseAudio, which supports working through ESD
interfaces as well as native ones. It is a drop-in replacement for ESD and
TiMidity++ supports channeling the output of the MIDI through EsounD, which
can be picked up by PulseAudio. I hope this is useful for starting the work
needed to complete the Free JavaSound implementation. Both PulseAudio and
TiMidity++ are cross-platform, so I don't think there should be any issues
I am not a programmer unfortunately, so I cannot help, but my stake in this
has to do with distributing java-based multimedia software that is FOSS. I
hope JavaSound issues get resolved soon!
