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[4]: JDK 1.4?

Considering apps written for Haiku are written for Java *Standard Edition*, there really isn't much question about whether they will run. They will. And if you didn't check for endianness in your program, that's your fault, not Java's.

@abraxas: Stop spreading FUD.
