19. Compiling Java with GCJ by Per Bothner
Although Java isn't a popular choice for free projects, GJC can make it a viable option.

Java has less mind-share in the free software world, although many projects are now using it. Examples of free projects using Java include Jakarta from the Apache Foundation (jakarta.apache.org), various XML tools from W3C (www.w3.org) and Freenet (freenet.sourceforge.net). See also the FSF's Java page (www.gnu.org/software/java). Read more.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
