The FreeBSD Foundation has a license with Sun Microsystems to distribute FreeBSD binaries for the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit (JDK). These implementations have been made possible through the hard work of the FreeBSD Java team as well as through donations to the FreeBSD Foundation that supported hardware, developer costs, and legal fees.

The official JRE and JDK binaries based on Sun's latest partner sources provide end-users and developers alike with confidence that they can use and create Java applications on FreeBSD with the same degree of portability, robustness and stability that they have come to expect from other supported operating systems. These binaries have been fully tested under Sun's compatibility test suite.

Please consider a donation to the FreeBSD Foundation in order to support continuing Java development. Your donations will help fund maintenance updates, future Java releases, and updates to new FreeBSD versions.

OEM Downloads

This section is for OEMs. An OEM is a vendor who will bundle the binaries with other software before distributing the bundled product to end users. The binaries are the same, but the license agreement is different. Vendors who are redistributing the binaries must have a trademark license agreement with Sun. This will be explained more, in Exhibit A of the license agreement, that appears when you start to download a package below.
