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).

I know that ordinary ISO contains a FAT32/FAT16 compliant filesystem. ISO9660 compliant means a FAT32 system and since BeOS uses BeFS - a filesystem that stores a lot of the file info in different places such as attributes - it is not ISO compliant. Well, I thought of a wrapper e.g. in order to use BFS and be compliant with ISO9660. It should somehow be possible since one was able to 1. boot BeOS from DOS and 2. was able to boot a BFS file inside a FAT filesystem.
