Where should we put mention of apt repositories for java?

If you're talking about apt repositories that contain the java virtual machine or java development programs, I'd put it as a subsection in the Getting Java section. If you're talking about apt repositories for programs that need java, I'd put it in a seperat section underneath Getting Java. Crazyeddie 03:34, Aug 23, 2004 (EDT)

Should Java be included in compiled language?

This is a bit of a gray area. Java is never compiled to machine code so technically speaking it is not a compiled language. It is compiled into byte code which is interpreted into machine code on the fly. This makes it sort of a hybrid language. As a result, I think some special mention needs to be made, but I don't want to make any changes without support of the original author.

I'd put it in, along with a short description of the subtlites involved. Crazyeddie 02:30, Feb 22, 2005 (EST)
