Re: Java on AMD64 Question
Beware because debugging is broken with Blackdown's JDK 1.4.2_01 on
AMD64. It's been reported several times in their BTS, but there's been
no answer so far (at least on the BTS; I haven't checked their mailing
list, if they have one).
Also, if you use Eclipse, avoid Sun's JDK (Blackdown's included) because
the JIT has a bug that's triggered frequently by the editor causing
Eclipse to crash.
I found IBM's JDK 1.4.2 to be the most stable on AMD64, though it has
its own bugs (not so severe as the others on this platform) and no
public bug tracking system to report them. There is a newsgroup but
there's barely any traffic there, though I've seen an IBM employee
In brief, I'm using IBM's JDK 1.4.2 and I can't complain because I least
it gets the work done (and I use it constantly).

Hello. I'm a little confused as to getting Java on my AMD64 system.
Can I apt-get install it? I went to java.com and they seem to have an
AMD64 self extracting binary. I would rather use apt-get though so
that I can keep it up to date. Thank you for the help.
