Enfin la possibilité de packager le jdk et le jre de sun
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. JAVAONE CONFERENCE, May 16, 2006 Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW), the creator and leading advocate of Java technology, today announced that Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) 5 is now available for redistribution by GNU/Linux and OpenSolaris operating system distributors under the new Operating System Distributor's License for Java (also known as the "Distro License for Java" or DLJ).
Developed in consultation with, and for use by, the various GNU/Linux communities, the new license allows distributors to ship Sun's Java SE 5.0 Java Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) as installable packages for their operating systems
Official packages of Sun Java are now available from the non-free section of Debian unstable, thanks to Sun releasing Java under a new license: the Operating System Distributor License for Java (DLJ). This license, while still non-free, allows the Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) to be distributed by Debian, with our own packaging.
Debian remains committed to supporting free runtimes and development environments for Java, such as Kaffe and GCJ, and we look forward to working with Sun as they explore their options for making Java more free, and extending their involvement in the free software community for other portions of Java and other projects.
