Default Java for the Amiga (redux).

Has anyone consider this for AmigaOS? The GNU Compiler for the Java.

Just curious.

I assume it would be no small effort, but I wonder if it's also doable.

Did anyone draw any conclusions about it?

As far as I know, the main reason we don't have Java on the Amiga already is that it is a huge effort to port the libraries. A compiler needs the libraries to do any useful work. Port the libraries and everything else should fall into place fairly quickly, even if the first version isn't perfect.

Wouldn't it be unbearably slow?

ISTR Holger Kruse, of Miami fame, having some kind of Java engine available a while back. Of course, there was an X-Windows server available as well. What ever happened to either of those?

It's a compiler, Moto, so it's only as slow as the system running it.

Oh ok. I thought it was a Java VM.
