Congratulation Sun and a doubt

First, thx Sun for making this open source. That's the way to go and not the monopolistic closed-code that Microsoft wants.

Now a question... I am a 3D game developer. I was using .NET for scripting in my 3D engine... Can I use now the OpenJDK like LUA to script some objects in my engine? I mean... download the JavaVM and exchange C++/Java data and object in both directions like LUA does... Also not sure if the 6M of lines in C++ are good... can I download a "lite" version of the JavaVM ( i can't see it atm )?

Hi jogshy,

I am not familiar with LUA so perhaps someone else can answer that question. Currently we don't have the entire JDK out yet as open source, but you can take a look at it under the JRL license: see either the JDK 6 project at or JDK 7 project at for now. Sun does not distribute a "lite" version because we don't believe subsetting the technology is a good way to go. Is there a reason you can't use the commercial JRE (see for your purposes?
