export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/kaffe
sh startofbiz.sh

Of course, ofbiz includes lots of jars in it's tarball and checkout.  I
haven't checked all of them(well, not any of them), to see how they fit in
with the DFSG.  Some of the jars included are there for the convience of
end-users, and aren't really used by ofbiz(unless this has changed in HEAD, I
last checked this for 2.1.  If it *is* the case, I'd like the unused jars to
be removed from cvs(hint to the ofbiz developers)).

I'll make one.

bash-2.05b$ /usr/lib/kaffe/bin/java -cp . ShutdownHookTest
bash-2.05b$ /usr/lib/j2se/1.4/bin/java -cp . ShutdownHookTest
ShutdownHookTest thread running
bash-2.05b$ cat ShutdownHookTest.java
public class ShutdownHookTest
extends Thread
        public void run()
                System.out.println( "ShutdownHookTest thread running" );

        public static void main( String[] args )
                ShutdownHookTest sht = new ShutdownHookTest();
                Runtime.getRuntime().addShutdownHook( sht );
