openjdk-6-jdk vs official JDK?

I just installed openjdk-6-jdk on my Debian Lenny server. Can my users expect any unpleasant surprises compared to an "official" Java JDK or will it be mostly seamless?

I'll do a little of my own testing tomorrow morning, but if anyone here has anything to say on the subject in the meantime I'm all ears.

I've never had a problem with OpenJDK. I think most of the code is the same anyway.

Just for the record, I wish I had installed actual JDK. I have users getting weird behavior where a perfectly good for loop causes unexplainable compiler errors (and replacing it with a while loop fixes the problem). The code compiles fine with Java JDK.

I think it's not exactly the same. I use a java based chat client (mercury, to be specific), and it used to work fine with the openjdk, but since some versions back, it just became unusable when using the openjdk, so I had to switch to the Sun jre.
