Hello Javier, I have no idea if awesome is a re-parenting window manager (and I don't event know what it is). Sorry for that part. I let competent people answer you. Just wanted to complete what the previous answers were saying. In the wiki, you have a full page of tips and fixs for Java issues: http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Problems_with_Java.
Sincerely good luck if you try to fix OpenJDK.
