Can jogl be used in completely free (as in freedom) environments?

Is it necessary to have Sun's java installed to use programs written with jogl?

Thank you for your answers, best regards,

As far as I know, atleast IBM's and Apple's should work... Grin

Not sure about gcj/kaffe though  Roll Eyes

EDIT: realized that I probably didn't answer your question...

With the usual IANAL comment I would say that you can use jogl without any "strings attached" to Sun (as in a legal way) as JoGL is released under a BSD license (IIRC).

Hope that helps Smiley

I think the requirements are Java 1.4 and compatible JNI implementation.  Do JNI libraries written for Sun's VM just work with IBM's on the same platform? Is that JNI compatibility a requirement for a VM to say it does Java 1.x?  I would expect so.

I've done a lot of JNI stuff between Sun and IBM VMs on both Windows and Linux with no problems. I'd suspect JNI compatibility is a part of the JVM spec.

JNI compatibility IS part of the JVM specification - its one of the earlier fightings that Sun/Microsoft had.
