A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
We'd like to determine whether Sun officially supports the latest (1.4.2) Java runtime on Red Hat Enterprise 3.  I see that bugs are being resolved that are specific to RHE 3(http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4959566.html), but the Supported System Configurations page for J2SE 1.4.2 lists RHE 2.1 only (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/system-configurations.html).

Since Red Hat has end-of-lifed support of other OS versions and directs customers to RHE3, it is critical for RHE3 to be a supported system comfiguration.


EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Red Hat Enterprise 3 as a supported configuration.
ACTUAL -
Red Hat Enterprise 2.1 only.

EVALUATION

Yes, RH 3 is a supported platform for 1.4.2.  I am currently reviewing supported platforms and will be updating these pages soon.

This ancient bug seems to be a non-issue now since the Certified Sys Config page for
1.4.2 mentions newer versions of Red Hat.
