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).

Good for Haiku. Bryan is it possible to run the old Java port on Haiku? Maybe take some screenshots of it running?

I really wish the team good luck, hopefully the OS wont feel like its 10 years old one day, to bad it looks like Win95 otherwise I would be more intrested in using it, it just doesnt attract me anymore by its look. I heard Stippi was sketching on a new more fresh look a year ago but it hasnt been shown in the light, right?
