OpenJDK 6 and 7 for FreeBSD

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 and are also distributed as a prebuilt binary package via the FreeBSD mirrors and can be installed directly using pkg_add(1).

OpenJDK is the recommended Java implementation on FreeBSD. The FreeBSD Foundation is therefore no longer providing 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.
