Subject: [FreeBSD-Announce] The FreeBSD Foundation Announces Java JDK and
JRE 1.5 Binaries for FreeBSD
Date: Wed, 05 Apr 2006 15:54:22 -0600
From: Deb Goodkin <deb en FreeBSD.org>
To: freebsd-announce en FreeBSD.org
The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of the
official Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit
(JDK) for FreeBSD. The Foundation negotiated a license with Sun
Microsystems to distribute these FreeBSD binaries. The binaries are based
on JDK 1.5 and work with the official FreeBSD 5.4 and FreeBSD 6.0 releases
on the i386 platform.
The FreeBSD Foundation provided financial support for Java development,
funded the certification process, and negotiated license and trademark
agreements to distribute pre-compiled binary packages of the Sun JDK and
"The release of official JRE and JDK binaries based on Sun's latest partner
sources provide end-users and developers alike with confidence that they can
use and create Java applications on FreeBSD with the same degree of
portability, robustness and stability that they have come to expect from
other supported operating systems," said FreeBSD developer and member of the
BSD Java Team, Greg Lewis.
"In doing so, the FreeBSD Foundation has placed FreeBSD on a par with other
enterprise operating systems for Java based web services,"
This official release is easier to install and less buggy than the existing
jdk15 port, Lewis said.
"With appropriate licensing from Sun, OEMs can now bundle Java applications
with a JRE or JDK for distribution on FreeBSD," said Deb Goodkin, Director
of Operations for the FreeBSD Foundation.
"The FreeBSD Foundation is very pleased to be able to continue to bring Java
support to the FreeBSD operating system platform, which has been made
possible through generous donations to the FreeBSD Foundation," said Robert
Watson, president of the FreeBSD Foundation.
"We are committed to continuing to enhance Java support on FreeBSD,
including certified releases for FreeBSD 5.5, FreeBSD 6.1, and added support
for the amd64/em64t hardware platform," Watson said.
