Java=Sun 'Write once, run anywhere' operating environment
under the sun' scripting language.
The confusion this similar naming (they have nothing else in common) has
caused, has been, and still is endless.
can somebody in the know please remind us what the issues are
regarding Java(script) for RiscOS? i thought it was that licence fees
are prohibitive when spread over such a small userbase -- wasn't that
what Acorn used to say? -- but i might misremember.
I do believe you are thinking of Java which Acorn licenced from Sun.
These days some, if not all, is open source.
This is mobile version of Java which might be suitable, but will require
developer time (a very scarce resource) to configure etc.
