The foundation has very little to do with development.

Last I heard, the last version of java that worked on sparc was blackdown 1.4.2 
(or something like that), but it had a security bug. If java on sparc is really 
important to you, then you probably need to run Solaris. Alternatively, you can 
convince the blackdown guys (or one of the other JRE/JDK providers) to do 
another sparc release.
