What is it?
Japhar is the Hungry Programers' Java VM. It has been built from the ground up without consulting Sun's sources. Here's a small discussion of why we decided to write Japhar.
Anonymous CVS
To keep yourself up-to-date with the japhar code, there is an anonymous CVS server set up.

Regression Testing
We have made a DejaGNU testsuite for Java which we use to assure that no new bugs sneak into the distribution. We recommend that you run the tests and check for new bugs before you send patches. You will need the DejaGNU distribution to get 'runtest'. It can be found at ftp://ftp.cygnus.com/pub/dejagnu.
To actually run the tests, cd to the 'testsuite' directory and do 'make check'.
