I know this is quite off-topic so sorry for flooding the list with
useless traffic ... but its really refreshing to see activity on the
porting side.
Haiku is a great OS, and I guess it would really benefit from a good
java-implementation - the same way Java would benefit because it would
become available on many OSs with no strong market force behind it.

Conclusion: Just happy to see something happen. Good luck for the port :)
