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.
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. This project will port such a current JVM to OS/2 and eComStation. Dmitry A. Kuminov, who is well-known for his work on the Qt 3 and 4 ports, has been hired as chief developer.
In order to use this version of OpenJDK, you will need the following:
- A OS/2 Warp 4 Fixpack 16+, OS/2 Warp 4.5 or eComStation operating system.
- Odin32 library
Please read the readme.os2 carefully. One listed problem is that OpenJDK will not work correctly under the OS/2 SMP kernel because of a current Odin32 issue.
