  1. [JAVA V1.6] When expected?

    Does anybody perhaps know, when JAVA V1.6 for OpenVMS (Alpha) is expected?

    We'd need it for avoiding our users to enter their pwd twice
    (builtin auth. webserver) in a homegrown java application...

    TIA

    I was looking into support for 1.6 on Itanium because I was thinking
    of buying an RX2660 to run OpenVMS/Linux. Call me cynical, but it
    looks like Sun is less than enthusiast about supporting Itanium for
    java 6. This may be because Java appears to perform better on HP/
    Itanium boxes rather than Sun boxes.

    I appreciate that it is down to HP to provide a version for Alpha/
    Itanium under OpenVMS. However, I can believe that Sun could make this
    a difficult process if they do not provide their own version for
    Itanium.

    I'm happy to be corrected however. This is purely down to my own
    personal investigations.

    Regards, Mark

    I don't know if JAVA 1.6 is planned for Alpha. For VMS I64 JDK 6.0 is
    planned for late 2007.
    Java SE 6.0 on OpenVMS Integrity appears to be scheduled for 2008H2

    I don't believe Sun ever provided a version for Alpha under any OS.

    Would that be on the same Road Map as IPsec?

    Cheers Richard Maher

    PS. Lest we forget exactly how long 1.5 has been available on VMS.

    Look for the ipsec EAK later this year.

    Hi Ian,

    I have been eagerly plotting the progress of "Muggeridge's Comet" as its
    vapour-trail has whizzed across the VMS road map since its near-earth
    collision with VMS 8.3.

    So Dec 31st then?

    Cheers Richard Maher

    PS. Just as a "contingency" (and for those without Multinet) Has anyone here
    imlemented a host-to-gateway IPsec network? What did you use for a IPsec
    Gateway Device front-ending their VMS boxes? Router? Unix/Windows box? Any
    problems with it having to be outside the Firewall?
