I think it's about time somebody checked out OpenJDK to port it to
DragonFly. Being GPL, it'd be a(n almost) complete Java solution.

Also, apart from parts of Swing, gcj/gij is very good lately. It's
been hosting Eclipse, Tomcat, etc. for a long time, and may be good
enough for what people want from a JDK and JRE.
