Not limited to Sun[edit]

I can't see any justification for excluding non-Sun Java links from this box.

Templates are navigational aids, and Wikipedia doesn't mind Blackdown users learning about GNU Classpath, or GNU Classpath users learning about Sun's class libraries.

If Sun's contributions to Java were small, then I could see that maybe that niche topic maybe deserve a box to itself, but they're not. The majority of Java info is Sun-Java info, so adding non-Sun links will not overly bloat this box and will not thwart the searches of any peculiar folk who find it difficult to uncover Sun-Java info among the general Java info.
