Free Java Developer Room
The Free Java developer room
In the past several years there were two main events around libre java for the GNU/Linux platform. The Fosdem "Escape the Java Trap" event organized by the GNU Classpath community, coordinating technical issues around implementing core libraries, compilers, tools and free runtimes. And "DevJam", a GNU/Linux distro packaging conference organized by Debian, but meant as a cross-distribution coordination meeting to set common guidelines for packaging java programs and libraries.
The goals of the Free Java Meeting will be:
- Clearing OpenJDK encumbrances
- Increasing Java Ubiquity: working together across projects and platforms
- Improve the distro packaging guidelines (filesystem layout, packaging inter-dependencies, browser integration, developer guidelines, etc.) used across GNU/Linux distributions for java libraries and programs.
