Hi Mark,

thanks for the links. I was able to test b18 and at least this build still throws UnsupportedOperationException.
I now wanted to follow-up the path but it seems that the fedoraproject has some database issues...
Will try again later. And yes a central repository with all old binary & source bundles would be helpful.

We do keep a mirror of the old GPL sources (which came from the svn
repository) in mercurial at if
anybody needs anything early (b13 till b23). Although the changes
between the bxx drops are somewhat big, you can do some simple
investigations against it through mercurial.

Also various GNU/Linux distros still have old GPL binary icedtea/openjdk
1.7 packages (and source code of course) around (although most are
tracking jdk6 these days). Here are old builds of the 1.7.0 tree (b18
till b24) for Fedora 8/9 for example:
