BeOS & Derivatives Bryan Varner, one of the core developers of the stalled port of Java 1.4 port to BeOS R5 has an interesting post on his blog. Recently he met up with Ian Murdock of Sun at a local Java Users Group, and as a result he is now looking to restart the port, this time for Haiku.

Yeah, it's a bear alright.

Much of the class library code for 1.4.1 will be reusable on a current port though, so the platform abstraction is farily well along. It's not done, it's not quite -near- done, but I've been able to run some pretty heavy JDK 1.4 apps on BeOS R5.
