>> The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is already bundled with OpenSolaris OS. But for Java development, you need to download and install the Java Development Kit either form http://java.sun.com or from the official IPS repository. To enable Java development support, execute the following command:
More information here:
The OpenSolaris OS comes with the Java runtime integration plugin
(SUNWjre-config-plugin), JSS - Network Security Services for Java
(SUNWjss), and the JDK Runtime Environment (SUNWj<version>rt).
You might want to install the JDK Dev Tools (SUNWj6dev), the Java

Looking at the packages on Solaris it seems the JRE always installs
itself as-if actually a JDK. That way you get the full JDK by combining
the different packages.
Live and learn :)
