Java native :)
Solaris/Sparc or Intel or Win 95/NT Intel first:
Solaris/Sparc or Intel or Win 95/NT Intel then consider :
and JRE is 1.1.6v2 is available for libc5 and glibc there on i386,as well as ports for alpha, ppc, and sparc.
- SUN provides a Java SDK for Linux. See
- If you have a new enough kernel, you can enable support for Java binaries in the configure proceedure. RTFM
1.1.8 from /usr/ports/devel/jdk, again using emulation in the kernel
Various other Java packages are in /usr/ports/devel and other categories if you need them (jfc (swing, use with FBSD JDK 1.1.8), jad, HotJava)
guavac and Kaffe (Free JVM) are in /usr/ports/lang/guavac and /usr/ports/lang/kaffe, respectively.
Jikes should compile and work fine. It seems faster and more stable than Guavac, too...
For DOS users:
- No OpenBSD native port of Sun's JDK, but:
- Upgrade to ports-current. Most of the Java stuff in ports-current seems to work fine with OpenBSD 2.8-stable as of 3/1/01
- Then you can install Blackdown's Linux JDK1.2 from /usr/ports/devel/blackdown-jdk12 (uses Linux emu in kernel)
- You can also install the FreeBSD JDK
For Macintosh users:
for Java from: http://www.apple.com/macos/java/ (Might require system 8?)
Get a demo of (Visual) Cafe from Symantec or CodeWarrior Lite from Metrowerks
For OS/2, AIX, and OS/400:
- IBM has a JDK 1.02 setup for Windows w/ Win32s at: http://alphaWorks.ibm.com
- Both Sun and Caldera have made announcements about developing native dos java vms, but nothing has been released yet.
- Sun's JavaPC is in beta
Who've we offended ... SGI's, HP UX ... ? Add them here:
- A copy of CodeWarrior Lite ships with the BeOS.
No, really. I must have left someone out... Come on?

There is another fast GPL java compiler.
It's "guavac" for Linux. It's nice when trying to figure out bugs in the first stages of development. Later though, the other
mentioned packages are fine.
there exists also a "gcj" / "gjava" rpm, which needs gcc
