There is no binary/package of SCTP available for JDK6. We received a
number of inquiries about this so far, but none of which are considered
a high enough priority to consider an official backport to JDK6.
That being said, a while back I took the API and implementation from
JDK7 and tried to bolt it onto a JDK6 update. It was close to
completion, but I got side tracked with other things. When designing the
API, and doing the implementation, I considered the possibility that it
may one day be ported to JDK6. If you look at the implementation and you
will see that there are very little JDK7 dependencies. It should be
relatively straight forward to extract the API and implementation and
have it run with JDK6. One caveat, the implementation depends on a sun
private API and will only run with Sun's JDK.
Is this something you would be willing to work on? I can certainly help,
but I don't have the time right now to run with it myself.
