Yeah, I'm sure. Been there. Done that.

Have you actually tried it with OpenJDK? Projects will often say "you need
Sun Java" (mostly due to bad experiences with GCJ- or Classpath-based
runtimes), but just work with OpenJDK. Plus, the code is GPL, so it should
be trivial to fix if it doesn't work properly. If you have tried it and it
doesn't work, please explain what's not working, people here should be able
to help you fix it.

I also need Sun Java for work-related projects.

Again, are you sure you do? OpenJDK is 100% compliant to the JCK (Java
Compatibility Kit, the official Java compliance test) and something like
99% identical to Sun Java 1.6 (it supports even several non-standard sun.*
and com.sun.* classes and other implementation details, as it's derived
from the same codebase).
