BeOS & Derivatives The OpenJDK Porters Group approved by a unanimous vote the proposal submitted by the recently formed Haiku Java Team to port OpenJDK to Haiku. This makes Haiku the first OS platform to be sponsored by the Porters Group, and it means that the port is now officially part of the OpenJDK family of projects endorsed by Sun. The team already has a mailing list and a project home page; a mercurial repository is also on its way. Team lead Bryan Varner gives his latest update here on his blog.

RE: JDK 1.4?

I guess you are referring to
"I'm having some great flash-back style memories of working on the JDK 1.4 port."?

In that sentence he is talking about the Java port for BeOS, which was 1.4. There was also a video of it running on Haiku one or two years ago.

OpenJDK, and therefore the current port are, of course, Java 7.
