4<para>The <application>J2SDK</application> package contains Sun's
5<application>Java</application> development environment. This is useful for
6developing <application>Java</application> programs and provides the runtime
7environment necessary to run <application>Java</application> programs. It also
8includes a plug-in for browsers so that they can be <application>Java
9</application> aware.</para>
10
11<para>
12The <acronym>JDK</acronym> comes in two flavors, a precompiled binary and a
13source package. Previously, the plugin included in the <acronym>JDK</acronym> binary
14package was unusable on <acronym>LFS</acronym>
15owing to incompatibilities with <acronym>GCC</acronym>-3 compiled browsers.
16This is not the case anymore.</para>
17
18<para>The source package requires registration at the Sun
19developer site and accepting the Sun Community Source License.
20The source code cannot be downloaded from some countries, so for users
21from those countries, the binary may be the only option.</para>
22
23<para>Even if you plan on compiling the <acronym>JDK</acronym> source, you will
24need to download the binary version to bootstrap the <acronym>JDK</acronym>
25build. Follow the below link to download both source and binary packages. When
26downloading the source also download the <application>Mozilla</application>
27headers package available at the same location.</para>

29<!--
30<para>For users who cannot download the <application>J2SDK</application> source owing to license restrictions, <application>blackdown
31</application> has an <acronym>GCC</acronym>-3 based precompiled version.
32Check out <ulink url="http://www.blackdown.org/"/> for more
