Yes, the technique or reinstalling a new JDK in a local file system in the
sparse zone (in my case I installed it in /usr/local/bin) where you have write
permissions worked just fine. The down side was that I already had a working
JDK in both the global zone and the sparse zone. I installed the 32-bit self
extracting file and then the 64-bit self extracting file to get 64-bit support.
The /usr/local/bin was defined in the global zone as /usr/local_zsap24 and then
mounted in the sparse zone as /usr/local. I knew from some examples that I
would need to do this. The SAP installation proceeded uneventfully, though I
am not done yet. The JCE installation process was successful.
