BeOS & Derivatives According to a news post on the Haiku project website, a new port team is being formed to bring Java technologies to the Haiku platform. The goal of the Haiku Java Team is to port OpenJDK to Haiku, and they would like to see the port included within the structure of Sun's OpenJDK project. The Haiku developers have already been in contact with members of the OpenJDK Porters Group to pursue their objective, and a formal proposal has also been submitted for consideration by the OpenJDK project. The Haiku Java Team is an initiative lead by Bryan Varner, who together with Andrew Bachmann worked on the port of Java to BeOS in the past (demo video).

The beunited effort was completely independent of anything Zeta related. We were targeting BeOS R5.0.3. Any cooperation between beunited and YelloTab was purely window-dressing and press-releases. I for one, never actually received my promised 'free' license to Zeta in the mail. In fact, I've never installed, nor tried Zeta.

That said, it should have worked on Zeta. It ran just fine on R5.

But now that both projects open source -- "they" can't take it from us.
