Well, I believe anyone who -wants- there to be a Free Java 2
implementation in Debian could probably work on one of the following

        * Kaffe: http://www.kaffe.org/

        A GPL'd JVM, currently at JDK 1.1.x level with some stuff

        * Japhar: http://www.japhar.org/

        An LGPL'd JVM, currently somewhere around 1.1. No standard

        * GCJ: http://gcc.gnu.org/java/ 

        A native compiler for Java. Somewhere around 1.1 at this

        * Classpath: http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/classpath.html

        A "clean room" reimplementation of the standard Java
        classes. Make Japhar work without JDK.

If someone is really hep to make Java 2-based programs part of Debian,
I think they should start here.
