FreeBSD Java® Project

Jump to Java®

The OpenJDK® project provides an open-source implementation of the Java® SE Platform and is available in versions 6 and 7 for all supported FreeBSD releases on the i386 and amd64 platforms. Both versions can be installed by building from sources using the FreeBSD Ports Collection (openjdk6 and openjdk7, respectively) and are also distributed as a prebuilt binary package via the FreeBSD mirrors and can be installed directly using pkg(8).

OpenJDK® is the recommended Java® implementation on FreeBSD. The FreeBSD Foundation is no longer providing supported Java® JDK® and JRE® packages based on Sun's partner sources. Older packages for Java® JDK® and JRE® 5.0 and 6.0 are still available below for reference and legacy use only, but are no longer supported.

Further information about downloading the unsupported binaries is available from the FreeBSD Foundation Java® Downloads page.
