Java Compatibility: IBM vs. Sun/Oracle JDK

From LinuxVM
Jump to: navigation, search

The purpose of this page is to document the problems that people have run into porting applications related to the differences between the IBM and Sun/Oracle JDK. The idea of this came from a meeting with IBM where the incompatibility concerns were raised. By documenting the problems we experience, we hope to shed more light on the situation with IBM and see how it can influence the development of common object classes as part of the OpenJDK effort. In addition, this documentation may help others who are in the process of trying to do a port.
