This was posted a couple of days ago over at AO. I thought it would have been posted here by now.

hmmm...

nice to see... but... wouldn't it have been better to go to something like the Jikes RTE from IBM which (IIRC) contains a working PPC JIT, and some AWT/Swing Stuff nicely abstracted.

and have they tried to contact Holger Kruse about getting the source for his Daytona? (as if there is any way to get any response from him )

Excellent. Is this a port using the original source code?

Well, I hope it's okay, but I'm quoting Amigamad's explaination of how to install from the AO thread.

Quote:
HOW TO INSTALL JAMIGA

Only a few simple steps to get this thing running:

1.) Obtain the JAmiga-package, unzip it into any folder of your choice.

2.) Go to sun's website (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/download.html) and download their JDK 1.3.1 (1.4.x should also work) for a platform of your choice (well, you should HAVE that platform...)
ATTENTION! We recommend that you chose the Windows Version. Others have NOT been tested!

3.) find the location of the rt.jar - file that's included in the JDK

4.) use jar to "unzip" it >jar xvf rt.jar (a UNZIP Utility should work as well, you may have to rename the file into rt.zip)

5.) copy the folders /java/lang, /java/io and /java/util to the same folder as the JAmiga-executable is (if you go via network you may want to zip it up again)

6.) Now JAmiga *should* work

I know he wrote it @ amiga.org, but it was just a rewrite of the amiga_install.txt file from jamiga

I suspected as much... but since I haven't downloaded and tried it yet (I'm running 3.5) I wasn't sure.

@Kay
Well I don't know how to tell you, but you don't compile.
The line
this.happiness+=.12;
gets a compiler error because of loss of precision.

Anyway, it's good to see Java on the Amiga. I'll support those guys developing JRE1.3.1, if I can.

I just think their project looks great so far
I look forward to get AmigaOS4.0, would be nice, if the Friedens - or someone else - could help them ... make it at least Alpha ... and include it into the contributions drawer ... Just dreaming

DOH! Of course you're right. I had meant it to be a float, not a long. Guess I'm rusty...

eeehhh....

to compile jamiga there is a project file for StormC V3 (but you can compile it with StormC V4 GCC too, simply change the compiler used)

to compile java code...
use jikes from aminet, there isn't any better.
