Java for OS/2 and eComStation Project Started

Silvan Scherrer has started a new project to port the latest Java to
OS/2 and eComStation. Java is a very popular sophisticated programming
environment. Applications written in the Java language are run inside a
virtual machine (Java Virtual Machine, JVM) which provides a nearly
identical behavior on all platforms that have a JVM implementation
available. This "write once, run anywhere" approach means that
developers can support a multitude of platforms while only having to
maintain one code base. For users, availability of a current Java for
OS/2 and eComStation means access to a huge number of existing

For more information about Java, see:

Previously, Java had been made available for OS/2 and eComStation by
IBM, Golden Code and Innotek. However, new versions with many changes
and improvements have been released since then and current applications
require a current JVM implementation.
The new project will port such a current JVM to OS/2 and eComStation.
Dmitry Kumenov, who is well-known for his work on the Qt 3 and 4 ports,
has been hired as chief developer. Funding is provided by several
companies and individuals, with Mensys BV being the main sponsor.

Is this going to be native or a wrapper around a win version?
