Java and GNU
Introduction to Java
As a starting point, here are the two major packages and a couple of other links related to Java and the GNU project:
- GNU Classpath, essential libraries for Java.
- GCJ, the GNU compiler for the Java programming language.
- Sun begins releasing Java under the GPL, news release from the Free Software Foundation.
- Free but Shackled - the Java Trap, happily no longer directly applicable to Java, but still an important lesson to heed in the future.
