Java on OpenBSD?

3 posts in this topic

Hello. I am interested in putting OpenBSD on my home server and read some information about the OS.

For hardware part, I am very excited that OpenBSD supports my VIA RAID card; for the software part, most of the software I use in Linux exists on OpenBSD official ports & packages too, except Java.

I just wonder, if Java can be installed on OpenBSD, or BSD-derivatives (except Solaris and OS X)? I can't find out the Java package in OpenBSD ports and packages page, and some articles on Internet stated that I need to compile the whole Java package myself.

Thanks in advance!

Check the OpenBSD FAQ. Executive summary: It can be done, it's just a pain in the rear to get it up and running.

Thanks for your quick reply.

It shocked me that I will need to install X if I plan to install JRE (and JDK will be installed as well)...

I searched again and I found these two webpages:
