HP-UX or AIX for Java 6?

Is there an HP or IBM JVM out for Java 6 yet? A cursory look says no, but I've never maintained one of these systems, so I wouldn't know where to look if it's not obvious.

HP and IBM maintain their own Java VMs for HP-UX and AIX, Sun's JVM isn't available for these operating systems as far as I know. Unfortunately that means that the most recent version of Java for those OSes isn't up-to-date with Sun's newest Java version.

For HP-UX, see: Java� Technology Software HP-UX 11i. The current version of Java for HP-UX seems to be Java 5.0.

For AIX, see: IBM Developer kits for AIX, Java technology edition. Here, Java 5.0 also seems to be the current version for AIX.
