Hello everyone,
Yeah... the forum is closing. And if you're wondering why? I'd say this forum was like a red herring... I mean, there was no need for it from the beginning, and it distracted me from the main projects of the website and mission. On the other hand, we already have a Facebook group with over 2.3k members! For now, I'll leave it online in "read-only" mode (to avoid spam); because we may need it in the future, and there are some good topics here.

I want to thank everyone who joined the forum, especially Entuzio and Toysoft, for helping me moderate it and the group :) Also, stay tuned for new updates for the projects and group.

Thank you for reading,

Java for Amiga

#1 Post by Mohamed said »

Hello everyone,

From a time ago, I had read about a project named (JAmiga), which is an effort to port Java to the Amiga and Amiga related operating systems.

So I searched more about that interesting topic, and I found another tool for Amiga named (Java Grinder) that translates byte-code from Java (.class) files into native assembly code -much like a JIT or an (ahead of time) compiler-, so gives the ability to write programs in Java to run natively on Amiga or other platforms.

This video of a demo compiled by Java Grinder running on an Amiga 1000, also after it completes, there is another video of the same demo running on the emulator.

As an Atari fan, I hope Java got ported to the m68k-atari platform :)
