I took your patch and changed it a bit to enable tests. They require
JUnitParams, which we don't have, as well as some work to actually be
able to run the tests without having the package try to download

Attached are two patches, that add java-junitparams and that update
icu4j with the proper sources.

I also tried to use the git repository, but that failed because three
data archive files come from git-lfs and are not fetched by git-fetch,
so I kept using the release tarball instead. I've rebuilt the few
packages listed by guix refresh successfully.
