Hi Amanda,
    My name is Dan Higgins and I work at NCEAS at UC Santa Barbara. I 
put together the Kepler installers that are on kepler-project.org and 
the nightly build. I don't know of anyone running Kepler on Solaris. 
However, the basic Kepler application is pure Java. It should then run 
just fine on Solaris (and it does run on Windows, Mac OS X, and several 
versions of Linux).
    There are a few actors that use OS specific jni routines, but not 
having all the dynamic libraries on Solaris would only affect those 
specific workflows that use those actors. Also, we are currently using 
Java 1.5 (and there are a couple of minor problems with compiling the 
Java code under Java 1.6).
