BeOS & Derivatives According to a news post on the Haiku project website, a new port team is being formed to bring Java technologies to the Haiku platform. The goal of the Haiku Java Team is to port OpenJDK to Haiku, and they would like to see the port included within the structure of Sun's OpenJDK project. The Haiku developers have already been in contact with members of the OpenJDK Porters Group to pursue their objective, and a formal proposal has also been submitted for consideration by the OpenJDK project. The Haiku Java Team is an initiative lead by Bryan Varner, who together with Andrew Bachmann worked on the port of Java to BeOS in the past (demo video).

Will on Haiku Java running before it runs on ReactOS?

I like both Operating Systems. But I think it would be interesting, on which of the two Operating Systems a actual Java runs first.
ReactOS needs only support the Windows-Java and Haiku needs additional a port to its platform.

On the other side, in some areas Haiku is already more advanced then ReactOS, I think.
For example in some screenshots the screen-resolution is much higher in Haiku then on ReactOS-screenhsots. Wide-Screen driver seems not supported currently on ReactOS.
Addistional it is possible to move on Haiku full windows (not only outline like on ReactOS) and that a lot of faster.

So, it would be interesting, which of the two Operating Systems will at first running a modern Java.
