Excuse me while I try to stop laughing.

As far as anybody can tell the Java Root Certificate Program is some 
sort of black hole that applications go into but then nothing happens.

See for example https://forum.startcom.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1815 
where there are five year old messages from StartCom people to the 
effect that they are trying to get Oracle to add their root.

More recently letsecnrypt have applied but there has been no evidence of 
anything happening.
