Porting something like JamVM would be relatively simple, but it's the huge class libraries that make it a difficult task to have a full Java stack on Amiga OS's.
I have a pathological (probably unjustified) hatred of Java... Do we really really need it? (yes I know I have two apps open right now that are built with Java... Cyberduck and Arduino... I'm so conflicted)

I have a pathological (completely justified) hatred of C and C++. ;) So, yea, a more mature next-gen language would be nice. It doesn't have to be Java, I'd be happy with C# too.


@ Nicholas

True, but it'd still be nice to have.


@ mt12345

Still running fine. Unfortunately, I don't use it heavily enough to say it's totally stable, but it is usable. As to games, like I mentioned, I just don't play games much anymore, so I don't remember which ones I tested that didn't run to well. I remember Doom ran without issues.

I'm not the world's greatest fan of Java myself, but it's much closer to C++ than Obj-C is, which makes it better for me.

Now this JVM should run on Amiga NG systems right now. :)
