[PLUG] JRE suggestions?

So the other day I wanted to play some Java games in Konqueror.  I'd heard
of Blackdown before (used it to run Oracle's OUI), so I downloaded it and
installed it.  Then I realized that I didn't see source on their web site
or their ftp site.  I went looking around, on Freshmeat and such, and the
only other JRE I found was IBM's (and I don't think you can get the source
to that one, either).

This got me wondering if anyone has compared Blackdown to IBM's JRE.  Or
if there are any others for Linux besides these two, with or without
source.  And which one performs best.  Thoughts, suggestions, links?
