OS/2 and eComStation "The netlabs.org project to port Java to OS/2 has released an RC2 build of OpenJDK 1.6.0-b22; both JRE and SDK packages are available, including versions marked as 'single processor only' to avoid SMP crashes. This release improves system tray support and has other fixes, and can compile and run Java applications, including GUI applications that use AWT and Swing. It uses the Odin32 runtime libraries; a GA release is scheduled for mid-April, and future updates should include browser plugins and OpenOffice support. The project is still short on funding; you can help by sponsoring units via Mensys. There is also a review with some screenshots showing some applications running with it." He didn't test Minecraft, though.

Good work!

Do eComStation users know how to run Java applications (how to start)? The OS doesn't detect the applications, as I remember.

I don't know about eComStation, but from what I remember from my Warp 4 days, you simply had to double click the .class or .jar file. Nothing more was required.
