The FPC backend for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) generates Java byte code that conforms to the specifications of the JDK 1.5 (and later). While not all FPC language features work when targeting the JVM, most do (or will in the future) and we have done our best to introduce as few differences as possible.
This FPC JVM backend is not related to Project Cooper by RemObjects, nor does FPC now support the Oxygene language.
You can find compiled snapshots of the initial version below (svn r18783, 2011/08/20). These are cross-compilers from the mentioned platform to the JVM. The generated code is not specific to the JVM running on that particular platform.
Installation instructions: unpack the archive file, adjust the path in the unpacked bin\fpc.cfg (Windows) or etc/fpc.cfg (other platforms) so it points to the directory where you unpacked the file, and use the included ppcjvm compiler to compile sources. A number of test files used during development of the JVM backend can be found at http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/branches/jvmbackend/tests/test/jvm

If your platform is not listed above, or if you are only interested in building the compiler/rtl from source, a separate archive that only contains the compiled Java components (Jasmin, javapp, BCEL) is also available. Building instructions are listed below.
