Jazilla Regains Footing

Tuesday September 14th, 1999

Matthew Schmidt has good news for Java proponents:

"In the last few months, Jazilla has gained speed as the programmers that were involved have regained interest in light of recent motivation and some new interest in the project. Work has begun on an open source pure Java renderer, but the project needs help. Anyone with experience on the Swing Text package or the Swing HTML package is definitely wanted, although we will take anyone who wants to help. Check out the Go Jazillian! website for the latest news and downloads. To offer your help, send a post to newscape.public.mozilla.java. Thanks for your time."

Actually I see no reason why it couldn't. There is nothing preventing the Java language to be natively compiled. I think it's a great language, and more people should be using it. I'd, personally, like to see some true native compilers out there. It would be great if we could take an entire source tree and optimize it for an arbitrary machine with a simple recompile.
