Not quite - you probably want jdk7/jdk7 rather thenjdk7/tl .

2008, a blast from the past - I don't think that binary plugs 
from that long ago are still on the web - typically the last 
couple of them are. The source bundles for jdk7 end up at 


and currently go back to b70, which was promoted a bit more then 
5 months ago.

Sometime back in 2009 the jdk7 build stopped requiring binary plugs, 
fixing the kind of problem you're seeing - so if you can, I'd 
suggest going with a more recent jdk7 build for your development.
