Jrockit is available in portage as well, dev-java/jrockit-jdk-bin, but is masked ~amd64. However, as David asked specifically for sun-jdk, I think blackdown-jdk is a better recommendation, due to it's relationship with sun-jdk. Otherwise both ibm-jdk-bin (amd64) and jrockit-jdk-bin (~amd64) is availible. Note though that neither have all of the sun.* classes that some non-portable Java applications depends on. In that regard they have the same problems as the free classpath based vms. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.2.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFEBWlcOOpxqcksWu4RAsV2AJ9N1jeKDLlXmtnLh4hGl66H7sc6vwCff3Xt WHhSbGWvrvUGqtx93HShlAI= =AyqD -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-java@g.o mailing list
