New Java for Haiku Team Formed
The Java Team will be initially comprised of many existing Haiku developers who've expressed an interest in helping Bryan Varner and Andrew Bachmann, both of whom worked together in the past on the port of Java to BeOS under the BeUnited umbrella. The past experience with the BeOS port, plus the fact that other Haiku developers have also expressed their desire to help out with the port peripherally, puts this initiative in a great position to achieve its goals.
If you are developer with experience in C/C++, Java, JNI, Virtual Machines, or know a little bit about some of those topics and want to learn a whole lot more by throwing yourself under the bus, we invite you to be a part of our effort. Contact us so that we can discuss how you can help us bring Java technologies to the Haiku platform. This project is an excellent learning opportunity for students!
