I have several installations of IBM Java JVMs which are detected by PSI as instances of Sun Java JVM 1.6.x / 6.x and marked as insecure Sun Java Versions. Allthough I could imagine that the IBM Java also has security issues it at least should be detected as such.

The occurrences I have:
64-bit IBM Java integrated with the IBM Update installer:
C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\UpdateInstaller\uninstall\java \bin>java -version
java version "1.6.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwa6460sr7ifix-20100220_01(SR7+IZ70326))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.4, JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 Windows 7 amd64-64 jvmwa6460sr7-20100219_54049 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - 20100219_054049
JIT - r9_20091123_13891
GC - 20100216_AA)
JCL - 20091202_01


32-bit IBM Java JRE included with Websphere Application Server version 7:
D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\java\jre\bin>.\java -version
java version "1.6.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3260sr7ifix-20100220_01(SR7+IZ70326))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.4, JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 Windows 7 x86-32 jvmwi3260sr7-20100219_54049 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled
J9VM - 20100219_054049
JIT - r9_20091123_13891
GC - 20100216_AA)
JCL - 20091202_01

32-bit IBM Java JDK included with Websphere Application Server version 7:
D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\java\bin>.\java -version
java version "1.6.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3260sr7ifix-20100220_01(SR7+IZ70326))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.4, JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 Windows 7 x86-32 jvmwi3260sr7-20100219_54049 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - 20100219_054049
JIT - r9_20091123_13891
GC - 20100216_AA)
JCL - 20091202_01

This behaviour is encountered on a Windows 7 x64 installation which also has the Sun Java JRE installed, with the Sun JRE being the default:
C:\Users\Aikebah>java -version
java version "1.6.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_21-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.0-b17, mixed mode)

Hi,

What I need from you is a "Software Suggestion". If you are using the PSI, you can go to either the secure, insecure or end-of-life tabs, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, and click "Program Missing? Suggest it here!".

If you do this, and fill out the name as "IBM Java, Attn: Emil", I'll attend to it.

hope this helps.
