There's a maximum of five users allowed on the FTP site, and there are no system requirements for Jazilla posted (although they may be in the zip file). UPDATE: Andrew has sent us the steps needed to get jazilla running. Click "Full Article" below for the instructions.

Just need to download JDK!!!

Great effort you guys.

Although I wonder.. what do they do when new features/bugs are fixed in the original code? Do they implement them? Or are they just using the main "code base" and doing the rest on their own?

Sorry for my ignorance.

I've got a strange problem. I can't seem to find in my JDK1.2 installation (Yes, I installed the correct program, in fact I installed "everything".)

When "Reboot" is what you have to do after setting an environment variable

Just to clarify:

There are two ways to download Jazilla. One is to download the JDK +Jar file and the other (for Win32) is to run it as a native exe.

They both run the exact same code base but the exe does not need a JDK so it might be easy to install.

This is all very alpha.

Its for Windows.

Only download the binary file if you are going to run this under Windows. Its a Windows binary.

Follow the directions if you want to run straight Java code.

stephan -- I'm not sure there is a file anymore with jdk1.2... I think all the class files have been moved into the "./jre/rt.jar" file.
