sun package has been forbiden in java 1.7 on wards.

The java.*, javax.* and org.* packages documented in the Java 2 Platform Standard
Edition API Specification make up the official, supported, public interface.
If a Java program directly calls only API in these packages, it will operate
on all Java-compatible platforms, regardless of the underlying OS platform.
The sun.* packages are not part of the supported, public interface.

A Java program that directly calls into sun.* packages is not guaranteed to work
on all Java-compatible platforms. In fact, such a program is not guaranteed to
work even in future versions on the same platform.
