OpenJDK 6 JRE and SK 1.6.0-b22 GA

June 28, 2011 by madodel@ptdprolog.net

Java is a very popular sophisticated programming environment. Applications written in the Java language are run inside a virtual machine (Java Virtual Machine, JVM) which provides a nearly identical behavior on all platforms that have a JVM implementation available. This "write once, run anywhere" approach means that developers can support a multitude of platforms while only having to maintain one code base. For users, availability of a current Java for OS/2 and eComStation means access to a huge number of existing applications.


For more information about Java, see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_%28programming_language%29


Previously, Java had been made available for OS/2 and eComStation by IBM, Golden Code and Innotek. However, new versions with many changes and improvements have been released since then and current applications require a current JVM implementation. The new project will port a current JVM to OS/2 and eComStation. Dmitry Kumenov, who is well-known for his work on the Qt 3 and 4 ports, is the chief developer. For information about the project and its status, please see: svn.netlabs.org/java

"Note that there is no "mpusafe" archives any more since Java should now work fine on SMP computers. If you still need "mpusafe" behavior for some reason, you may manually mark all *.exe files in the ZIP archives using either the execmode tool (coming with eComStation) or the markexe utility (which you can find e.g. in the OS/2 Toolkit)."


Requires the following:
