OS/2 and eComStation OpenJDK had been released as GA for OS/2 and eComStaion. This allows eCS-OS2 users to run modern Java apps on their platform. The development is open source and had been in part sponsored by donations of the community.

That is because the product is not FOR you or general users, it is for financial institutions that were using OS/2 and believe me they have the money.


Truth be told, there are very few financial institutions that are still running OS/2 either, with the exception of a few very old ATMs.

Try a job search on Dice for OS/2 and see how many results you get. And of the four results that even mention OS/2, how many of those actually look like OS/2 is relevant, and not just part of a long laundry list of generic skills they copied for their job description?
