Java Technologies on SCO Systems

JavaTM Development Kit 1.1.7A

The JavaTM Development Kit (JDKTM) is a powerful development environment that is portable, object-oriented, platform independent, and especially well suited for developing Internet-enabled applications. The JDK includes the Java compiler, interpreter, classes, and documentation and is licensed to all UnixWare 7, SCO UnixWare 2, and SCO OpenServer Release 5 licensees.

JDK 1.1.7A is a full update release to the earlier JDK 1.1.3, 1.1.3u, and 1.1.3w releases. It has the same functionality as the JDK 1.1.3w for SCO Operating Systems, except that it is derived from the Sun JDK 1.1.7A base and contains the fixes and improvements that Sun added between JDK 1.1.3 and 1.1.7A. In addition, JDK 1.1.7A for SCO contains additional fixes and internal enhancements due to Sun's Solaris-based JDK 1.1.3A and 1.1.3D releases. Finally, this release incorporates elements of native threads support found in the Sun JDK 1.2.

Please note that the SCO edition of the Sun Java WorkShop, the SCO edition of the Sun Java Studio, and the accompanying just-in-time (JIT) compiler are no longer available due to licensing changes.

JDK 1.1.7A will run on the following versions of SCO operating systems:

  • UnixWare 7 Release 7.1.0
  • UnixWare 7 Release 7.0.1
  • SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.2, 5.0.4, and 5.0.5 (with the 7.1.0 OSRcompat package)
  • SCO UnixWare 2.1.3 (with the 7.1.0 UW2compat package)

For more information about the supported operating systems for JDK 1.1.7A, see the Supported Platforms section of the JDK 1.1.7A Release Notes.
