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.

This is not 1.4.

This is post J2SE 6, and the code that's forming the beginning of J2SE 7.

This is not just a JDK. The JRE is just a JDK without the developer tools. The Virtual Machine, class libraries, etc. are all the same. In fact, you can't get a JRE without the JDK. You need the java development tools to build a JRE or JDK. Funny thing is, those development tools for java are themselves written in java.

Chicken, meet Egg.
