New Jamiga Version! : Comment 1 of 12ANN.lu

The second alpha release comes with the following new or improved features

*** JIT ***
JIT now also works on "real world" 68040/68060 Amigas

Networking has been implemented (again :) )

Don't throw Tomcat at it just yet, JAmiga still lacks the required classloading mechanism, but some included small classes work well here.
Try for example

JAmiga TestSocket www.yourdomain.com

it should return the content of the webserver root file on www.yourdomain.com

Networking currently does NOT support UDP Sockets and the NetworkInterface class! Using these will throw exceptions

*** BUG FIXES ***
* The JIT Problem has been fixed (see above)

* An ugly bug in the UTF8 - UTF16 conversion has been fixed which was the reason for many memory-problems

*Networking now works in connection with multiple threads!!!! (A very old bug that was !)
> JAmiga TestServerSocket 10000 5
This will wait until 5 clients have connected to the local port 10000

*** AWT ***
very little has been done on AWT, but the TestFrame class now Resizes the open window ;)

Good to have progress!

A Java port to the Amiga will be something that I will be very interested in once OS4.0 is out.

Does anyone at your project Jamiga contacted the author of Jikes for Amiga, in order to pick his GPL Geek Gadget sources to create a new version of that, compatible with Amigas PPC based?

I tried to visit the site of professor Kyrimis, but it seems that the link it is dead...

(How strange)

This starts to look really good. Keep up the good work.

I know that it's not the first thing you should do, but I want to say this anyway. When you are ready to port GUI classes too, then I hope you try to port Swing classes. AWT is a bit obsolete and restricted now, Swing is what many of the new applications use these days.

In reply to Comment 7 (miksuh):
Ofourse even if you use Swing for GUI you still need also AWT, because Swing does not completely replace AWT.

I thought Swing was based on AWT as a foundation?

Anyway, I would say get AWT fully working first.

Great project, and very important to the future of Amiga.
