I have made JDK 1.5.0 available in binary form under the Sun Community
Source License binary redistribution terms.  This means that the
builds are not suitable for commercial use, though they should be
covered by the Research Use sublicense terms.

Tarballs are available via:

and I am adding the following packages to pkgsrc shortly:


to provide pkgsrc-aware versions of this JDK build.  Currently I only
have builds against NetBSD/i386 2.0+, but I plan on adding more builds
(including 1.3.1 for NetBSD 1.6, the last release runnable on that
NetBSD version).

If someone out there has a speedy SPARC running NetBSD 2.x or 3.x and
would like to help out, I need a build environment to make
NetBSD/sparc JDK builds.  (Other platforms are not yet complete in the
BSD JDK patchsets, so I'm afraid those will have to wait for a while.)
