No distribution of OpenOffice.org 3.3 was built at Apache OpenOffice.  (There was an out-of-cycle
security fix, but that did not require rebuilding the application.  I don't believe that fix
was provided for Solaris, however.)  The Apache OpenOffice code base was based on OpenOffice.org
code that was later than OpenOffice.org 3.3 code.

As you know, Apache OpenOffice has not provided any Solaris builds for its releases.  

It would appear that the best that can happen is if a private party with an eye on this list
is able to offer such a rebuild.

Who completed the OpenOffice 3.3 Solaris x86 build? It seems that we could easily add the
new vendor to the few files listed here, then recompile. I am sure someone already has the
environment set up considering the code was compiled for Solaris x86 in the past.  This could
then become a version 3.3 update to support Java 7. Thought?

This used to be a problem (in general, not Solaris-specific) for JREs that had "Oracle" as
a vendor. See

Note that 3.3.0 is unsupported.
