I'm afraid the java stuff may have bitrotted or is incomplete - I have
never tried it in all the time I have been working on buildroot, and I
don't ever remember any questions and/or patches about it on the list.

Anyone else?

The ntpl branch of uclibc is supposed to be merged real-soon-now, but
I don't actually know much more about it. I would suggest to stick to
the default linuxthreads for now.

 Jackson> Thanks for you time,

You're welcome.
