It's a new opensolaris 2009.06 installed by lab guys here.

In fact, you can see this "JDK" installation from a LiveCD of  
opensolaris. Just like a normal JDK, there are bin/ and jre/ (no lib/)  
under /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.6.0. But the bin/ directory only  
includes those files.

I'll try adding developer packages.
