Solution :

All Oracle JRE 1.6.x users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.6.0.20'
All Oracle JDK 1.6.x users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/sun-jdk-1.6.0.20'
All users of the precompiled 32bit Oracle JRE 1.6.x should upgrade to
the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.6.0.20'
All Oracle JRE 1.5.x, Oracle JDK 1.5.x, and precompiled 32bit Oracle
JRE 1.5.x users are strongly advised to unmerge Java 1.5:
# emerge --unmerge =app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.5*
# emerge --unmerge =dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.5*
# emerge --unmerge =dev-java/sun-jdk-1.5*
Gentoo is ceasing support for the 1.5 generation of the Oracle Java
Platform in accordance with upstream. All 1.5 JRE versions are masked
and will be removed shortly. All 1.5 JDK versions are marked as
'build-only' and will be masked for removal shortly. Users are advised
to change their default user and system Java implementation to an
unaffected version. For example:
# java-config --set-system-vm sun-jdk-1.6
For more information, please consult the Gentoo Linux Java
documentation.
