    awesome... is this like REAL java like on computers? If so then this is another breakthrough for the hacking community. This means Java applications can be pretty easily ported to the iPod now. THAT MEANS LIMEWIRE!!! ^_^

    or EVEN

    WINE?

    naw i doubt WINE would ever make it, but if it did *drools at thought*

    This is a 'proof of concept' build, so in theory this means Java Apps (where there are thousands out there) could run in this Java VM, however it is only command line based at this stage and there is no UI (no interaction with the touch interface) for it 'yet'.

    Give it time but at this stage its really in the early stages.

    The ARM processor supports Java VM natively which would be faster than this, but as the authors pointed out that there is no API for that 'yet'. This was produced to show that it can be done through software without an official API for the processor that is native to the iPhone or iPod touch.

    I for one would like to see full Java implementation done through Safari (pogo.com as an example uses Java to play their games).

    It's the first step to reaching that goal, but chances are Apple will likely release Java plug-in soon enough that uses the native VM APIs for the ARM processor which would be faster than this implementation of it. Impressive though.
