Apache Harmony - Open Source Java SE

Apache Harmony is the Java SE project of the Apache Software Foundation.

The aim of the project is to produce a large and healthy community of
those interested in runtime platforms tasked with creation of:

 * A compatible, independent implementation of the Java SE JDK under
   the Apache License v2

 * A community-developed modular runtime (VM and class library)

This source can be built from a tar/zip using:

  ant fetch-depends build

To build from a subversion checkout it is necessary to fetch the
component source with:

  ant populate-src

For information, including details of the prerequisites, see:
