View Full Version : [ubuntu] JDK or OpenJDK ?

Just general question, what is the difference between the two? I have been using Java for quite a while now on Windows XP to build my projects for University. Is the development kit absolutely the same or would it make a difference especially when working with IDE such as Eclipse?

Sun open sourced Java so that is where OpenJDK comes from.
There are/were some differences between it and sun's java but I'm not sure of the state right now.
However, I have used openjdk with eclipse and it was fine.
