    44Java is a very popular sophisticated programming environment. Applications written in the Java language are run inside a virtual machine (Java Virtual Machine, JVM) which provides a nearly identical behavior on all platforms that have a JVM implementation available. This "write once, run anywhere" approach means that
    5 developers can support a multitude of platforms while only having to maintain one code base. For users, availability of a current Java for OS/2 and eComStation means access to a huge number of existing applications.

    9 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. This project will port such a current JVM to OS/2 and eComStation. Dmitriy Kuminov, who is well-known for his work on the Qt 3 and 4 ports, has been hired as chief developer.

    1111This project aims at porting the open-source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition, known as ''OpenJDK'', to the OS/2 operating system. You can get more information about OpenJDK and related projects at the [http://openjdk.org/ official OpenJDK home page].

     15=== History ===
    1516To start the project, partial funding was already provided by several companies and individuals, with Mensys BV being the main sponsor. But we still needed to cover an amount of 8,000 EUR. At the 24th November 2011 we reached that goal and could release Java GA.
