FreeBSD & Java - FreeBSD

I have an application written in Java that I am thinking about deploying on FreeBSD. I am considering FreeBSD because of its reputation for stability and performance. The only concern I have is the port of Java on this system. I am a newcomer to FreeBSD (a few days in fact) so I just wanted to know what is the stability / reliability of the Java implementation? Are there many known problems etc. Regards, Rhys...

    Default FreeBSD & Java

    I have an application written in Java that I am thinking about deploying on
    FreeBSD. I am considering FreeBSD because of its reputation for stability
    and performance. The only concern I have is the port of Java on this system.

    what is the stability / reliability of the Java implementation? Are there
    many known problems etc.

    Why not just write it in C or some other compiled language, and
    eliminate the variable of a Java interpreter (while improving
    performance greatly to boot)?

    Rhys,

    I have been using the native FreeBSD jdk1.4.2-p7 port for a while now
    and I have not had any problems with it at all. I am also currently
    developing a Java3D based tool and it also runs very nicely on FreeBSD.
    If you want an ide, eclipse is in ports and it rocks.

    Jdk1.5 is still in alpha testing I believe although it seems to work ok
    but I wouldn't rely on it for anything important just yet.

    HTH

    This is a pretty silly comment. If he has written it in Java then
    porting it to C is probably not going to be trivial. On the performance
    side, Java's performance is actually pretty good. This is an article on
    Java vs various other languages. It is a 2003 article so I would
    imagine things are even better nowadays.
