OS/2 and eComStation "Previously, Java had been made available for OS/2 and eComStation by IBM, Golden Code and Innotek. However, new versions with many changes and improvements have been released since then and current applications require a current JVM implementation. The new project will port such a current JVM to OS/2 and eComStation. Dmitry Kumenov, who is well-known for his work on the Qt 3 and 4 ports, has been hired as chief developer. Funding is provided by several companies and individuals, with Mensys BV being the main sponsor."

As more and more applications are being developed in Java, having an up-to-date Java Virtual Machine becomes a rapid way to access such recent applications. This is a worthwhile path to renew the interest in the platform and get a few developers back into native development for OS/2 and eConStation (and also the OS/2 recreation projects).
