Use jdk16 if you want to build from source.
Use diablo-jdk16 if you just want the pre-built binaries.

You need a jdk installed as a bootstrap to build jdk16.

I usually just build from source, but it is much less hassle to just use the binaries. The biggest hassle with building from source is manually downloading the files and needing an account (free) with Sun to download some of them. Plus, if you have a slow machine, any jdk will take a while to build.
