Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

I'm pretty curious to see what happens with GCJ, Kaffe and others now.


I can only speak for Kaffe (since I run the project) - it's going to continue on. The people on the mailing list want it to continue on. It's still probably the easiest virtual machine with a JIT to port to exotic platforms.

And Dalibor Topic (the top Kaffe developer) is only the OpenJDK governance board now! :-)
