The FreeBSD + Foundation has negotiated a license with Sun + Microsystems to distribute FreeBSD binaries for the Java + Runtime Environment (JRE™) and Java Development Kit + (&jdk;).-
Newsflash! The FreeBSD Foundation has secured a license from - Sun Microsystems to distribute a native FreeBSD version of both the - Java Development Kit (JDK) and the Java Runtime Environment (JRE™). - Thanks to the great efforts of the FreeBSD Java team, these should - be available for inclusion with a future release of FreeBSD. - See Newsflash page for details.+
The current release of the JDK and JRE available via the + FreeBSD Foundation is 1.3.1. These binaries have been + tested and certified to run with FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE, but + may also work on other 4.X releases. These binaries are + not intended for use with FreeBSD 5.X, due to a binary + compatibility issue the FreeBSD Foundation is working with + the FreeBSD release engineering team to resolve.+ +
For further information about downloading the JDK and JRE + binaries for FreeBSD, please see the FreeBSD + Foundation Java Downloads page.
