Java2 in Navigator 5?

Tuesday June 15th, 1999

According to Alan Baratz of Sun, Java2 will be an integrated part of Navigator 5. I assume "integrated" means that it will utilize OJI, which should allow for their JVM to be replaced by another company's if desired.

Thanks to Bill Lynch for the news.

Sun is making the JDK (I dunno about JDK 1.1, but certainly JDK 1.2 [AKA Java 2]) compatible with OJI. Remember, AOL, Sun, and Netscape are all in a cooperative alliance of sorts now. :)

In other news, I hope Kaffe doesn't implement OJI.... They're putting the Microsoft "Java extensions" into Kaffe because MS is funding them (get around what you're getting sued for by funding a non-licensee). This only creates more Java fragmentation. :(
