Oracle jdk in Suse SLES 11 ppc64

I'm working with a PowerPC 7 machine, with Suse Server ppc64.

I know that in OpenSuse the default VM is OpenJDK, but in our installation (another person installed it) there is any VM operative, only some directories (/opt/ibm) with IBM SDK 5 and 6 that works.

We tried to install the Oracle 1.7JDK64 rpm package, and we got this error

package jdk-1.7.0_11-fcs.x86_64 is intended for a x86_64 architecture

Does it mean that there is not an oracle jdk/jre version for ppc? We must use the IBM SDK?

The project uses Spring, CXF, ActiveMQ and MuleESB, then I don't know if its 100% compatible with the IBM VM. I know that OpenJDK fails.


I agree. Here's the link:
