JDK and Slow SVN via Bamboo builds

We use a non-oracle jdk for our applications (IBM). So remote agents have a JAVA_HOME set to that jdk by default. For SVN and bamboo we were able to speed up our builds substantially by making sure that we used an oracle jdk/jre that was compatible in the svn transactions. We initially thought that it was a svnkit problem but recently when reconfiguring bamboo to use a sun jdk we discovered that svn was having issues with the version of the jdk we were running it under and switching to the sun jdk resolved our speed problems with the svn transactions. So bamboo (and presumably SVN) now run using the sun jdk while our compiles still use the IBM jdk. And the developers are happy because the CI builds are twice as fast.

And since it wasn't really a question I'm marking this as answered.
