Combine the power of Java's server libraries with the interactivity and user interface capability of Mozilla. Kevin Burton and Brad GNUberg are proud to announce java.mozdev.org, a central repository for open-source projects making this vision true. We have already posted two projects furthering this goal. First is a new build of BlackConnect for Mozilla 1.4 and JDK 1.3.1. BlackConnect is a pretty aggressive project... a full port of XPCOM to Java. This will allow developers to write components in JavaScript, C++, or Java and seamlessly integrate components used in other languages within the Mozilla platform. The second major project on java.mozdev.org are XPI builds of the Java Runtime, making installation of Java within Mozilla seamless for your Java-based Mozilla plugins. We need developers and testers!"

> How about a port of Java to Mozilla/XUL?

You might wonna check out the XUL Alliance site @ <http://xul.sourceforge> that lists dozen of XUL engines/browsers/runtimes in Java that let you build UIs using XML. While most projects use their own XUL (XML UI) dialects/flavors usually they are pretty close to the Mozilla XUL "gold standard".
