This is JAmiga, the project that brings you Java to AmigaOS.

The package contains a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the GNU Classpath library,
enabling you to run Java programs on AmigaOS.

Nota bene
This software is under constant development, and it is not yet considered
No one else except you can be held responsible for any data loss, damage or
inconveniences caused by this software.

- Java 1.5, and parts of Java 1.6 support
- Supports network, threading and native I/O
- AmiUpdate support for automatic updates

Run the install script to install.

If you have version 1.1 installed, it'll be upgraded. You should be able to
from v 1.1 using AmiUpdate.

To verify your installation, double-click the JAmiga script in the JAmiga
The script will print out various version information, and lastly execute a
simple Java program that prints out "JAmiga has been successfully installed".

In order to run thirdparty Java applications, you simply download the JAR-file,
and run like this:
    JAmiga:jamvm -jar JARFILE.jar

Still JAmiga 1.2, but another fix to the install script to handle spaces also in
user-startup (doh!).

This is JAmiga v 1.2, with instllation script 1.3 which fixes an issue hindering
installation to destinations with spaces in the name, i.e. "Amiga OS 4:System".

Known bugs
Bug: Harddrives with international charcters in their names, needs to be
assigned to a
name without international characters. For example a partition named

Solution: When you get a requester asking you to insert "H?rddisk:", you have to
it to the actual partition, f.i. "DH2:".

Only command line tools can be expected to work. Swing/AWT is not supported yet.
