I've started working on BISS AWT some days ago, see announcement from
1997/10/26 in this mailing list. But I can't compile it using JDK
1.0.2 (can't find java.lang.System 8-(( ). Using JDK 1.1.3 seems to
work, but some interfaces changed -> I must add some stubs, to get a
clean compile. Here's an example of the errors I get:

List.java:32: class biss.awt.List must be declared abstract. It does
not define void handleEvent(java.awt.AWTEvent) from interface

Today BISS AWT itself must stay in non-free. I hope that the licence
problems can be sorted out (I've send mail to BISS yesterday).

After the compilation has finished, I'll upload it to
http://www.oche.de/~leutloff/debian/packages/ and to master.

After that we can improve the package together, is this okay??

I really hope, that we get a free Java development environment really
