Would you mind explaining the difference between
sun-jdk and diablo jdk?

From the point of view of the end user or even the Java programmer
there is no differences - both jdk's offer the same public APIs,
compilers, runtime environments, etc. The differences are in the
internal implementaions.

Sun JDK is developed by Sun Microsystem. They officially offer binary
downloads for Windows, Solaris and Linux, as well the source code (for
their JDK). A FreeBSD port for Sun JDK does exists, but it is not made
by Sun. Take a look at that page: http://www.freebsd.org/java/

Diablo JDK (I think) is another implementation of JDK - see

This is not correct. The Java packages available from the FreeBSD Foundation are based on the same codebase as any other 1.5 JDK or JRE from Sun. The difference is that they are available as certified binary packages. See the original announcement for all the details:


then consider donating to the Foundation to support ongoing and future porting and certification work for Java on FreeBSD.
